As a previous tenant in that building I am not at all surprised. In our apartment only about half of the outlets worked and fuse shortages happened quite often.

Thanking God that what was now confirmed to be an electrical fire by the Fire Marshal happened in the 15 minutes time period while I was out walking my Gigi (my dog). I lost everything, but gained everything- My life!!

Praising God for His Grace and His Mercy this could have happened while I was asleep!

I’m so grateful to my neighbors for all of the support and well wishes!! Especially, Sergio & Michelle, Frank and family!
