Recovering from the Fire | VideoVan Tieu | 3/13/2013
Everything remains as it was when Angela Vogel, her daughter and two friends escaped from the flames. Dinner still sitting on the kitchen counter and a scorched play pen for her unborn child, just purchased a few days before and still in the box.
"With all the stress and everything, I might lose the baby. I`m just waiting to find out from my doctor," she said.
Vogel`s best friend, Tammi Holen, who owns the trailer, is worried about her, but says she`s holding it together for her six year old daughter, Adriana.
"It hasn`t really sunk in yet. She hasn`t broken down and cried or anything. She stay`s really strong. She`s a strong person."
The Red Cross has been helped the Vogels get immediate assistance, but they`re still looking for cash, clothing and household donations. They lost mostly everything to the fire. What remains are a box of canned goods, some blankets and a few burnt family photos in the trunk of her car.
"It`s pretty sad, just to look at it, and know that what I get to leave with... it`s hard," Vogel said.
The fire stated in the back bedroom, where the dryer unit was, luckily a door was closed to prevent the fire from spreading faster.
Vogel says she`s thankful that door was closed and no one got hurt. "Everybody that was here is out, and safe. Everything else can be replaced. Slowly and surely, everything else will get replaced."
The Angela Vogel Fire Benefit has been set up at First Community Credit Union, and clothing and household donations are being collected by Tammi Holen at 214-8980
