So, My mom calls me this morning and tells me that my uncle in Florida house has caught on fire last night at 12:23am.. I was a alarm 3 fire which means there is nothing left.. Also it burned up 3 cars in his driveway..My cousin jumped out of the window to her safety.. My uncle tells his girlfriend to jump out the window and he decides he wants to go out the bedroom to see how bad it was (leave it to a man) then then sees the couch in gulf-ed in flames so he throws a blanket over and looks down and notices the rug on fire and he is barefoot and burns his feet.. He then gets out of the house and goes around to find his girlfriend cause he told her to get out through the window..He doesn't see her and realizes she is still in the bedroom so he immediately gets a brick and throws it through the window which leads to making the smoke and heat get even more fierce and he can't get in there to get his girlfriend cause it is to hot.. She didn't make it she died in the fire... My uncle is okay he is in the hospital with smoke inhalation and some burns on his feet and face.. My cousin got out with not a scratch on her or anything...My grandma said he is doing the best he can but doesn't think that the shock has hit him yet... She said he was writing down what he needed to do etc... He hasn't dealt with his girlfriend being killed yet... It will hit him and it will be sad... He has nothing... He came out in a towel he has no clothes whatsoever.. No underwear nothing...I feel so bad cause I live in Virginia and don't have the funds to fly out there...My grandma told my mom to not come he says he is fine and needs no help but you know you would like to just be there for him and let him know his family is here to help him...I don't know! I am lost! I have cried today a lot....

Thank you for listening... I will attach the links to the paper for you guys to read once again thank you..Oh and in the paper it says a space heater my uncle says he didn't have any space heaters.. he said he had electrical heat and a/c so the paper is wrong..
