It was stated by the couple, they rebuild their house 3 years ago after it caught fire and burned down and now again this has happened, couples were pretty sad, they were also devastated for the nephew and niece.
the insurance claim has been initiated by the niece and nephew and they are figuring out the next steps. the situation was pretty devastating for the family as they were in serious trouble and the best part is that no one got hurt in the situation even though the scenario got pretty bad, it seems like they are going to have nightmares about the situation and probably the situation has made them more strong, you cannot question nature and it just happened and it is good to see, everyone came out fine after all of the devastation and the house protected them but got destroyed in doing so.
