Oh my, I'm glad you are unharmed but am very sorry for all the trauma and your losses. You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

Same. I'm sorry, be thankful that you are still here, alive and well to brew again another day. God bless.

I lost one chicken out of 21. My coop was attached to garage. I tore the chicken wire off and started slinging them out.

Despite the horrible events of the day, we have our lives to be thankful for and friends and family who are there for us

In all sincerity, happy thanksgiving, and god bless
that is absolutely my worst fear. I hope despite the fire you found your Thanksgiving filled with joy and family.

p.s. good call saving the beer!

Here is a picture of the aftermath. I need a new trailer for sure. Too much smoke damage and fire damage underneath. We are able to salvage most of our belongings. We were at a laundromat til 4 this morning washing every clothing item we own. What sucks is not having insurance on trailer. The property owners garage is insured but don't know to what extent. It's gonna be a long process to get readjusted.

Man that sucks! Sorry to hear about it and I am really glad nobody was hurt. Do you know what started it?

I believe it was the compressor. When I saw the fire when I opened the garage, it was in that area

As you can see in the picture the garage is gone. The trailer we live in is severely smoke damaged. We have been cleaning our belongings to save them. I'm hoping the property owners garage insurance will give us some assistance in replacing our trailer. I didn't have insurance on trailer.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to ask for assistance on this site, but any would be greatly appreciated

Well it's been 3 days since the fire and we have most of our belongings cleaned. We are using the our trailer as a storage facility and are staying with relatives until we can find a decently priced mobile home. Still have a lot of work to do. Guys from work have brought us big plastic totes with lids to put things in. They brought us s lot of 409 cleaner. That stuff is great. Maybe I'll be able to brew my thanksgiving stout next week. This whole process us exhausting. My heart goes out to all who have suffered loss from fire. Thankfully we didn't lose everything and we are all ok.

Glad to hear you guys are getting back on your feet. As a firefighter, I see the devastation that a fire can cause all the time. Its not the big ticket items (tv's, sterios, etc) that hurt, it's the irreplaceable stuff. The family bible, photos, family heirlooms, etc. Also, all the important legal documents (social security cards, birth certificates, etc) can be a pain to get replaced.

Glad nobody got hurt. That's all that really matters.
I'm intrested to hear if the garage owners insurance helps you out, so please keep us posted.

Take care, and hope you get life straightened out and back to normal soon.
