Rob Holmes described the event, “All hell broke loose. The trees snapped and the power lines dangled over our driveway. We could not get the cars out and the smoke was so bad our 18-month son Wyatt was having a hard time breathing.”
The fire was deadly and huge so the family (including four dogs and a cat) fled to a neighbor’s house and then to a hotel where they were safe. They were safe but unfortunately they were unable to bring their pet pig Charles when they fled, Rob’s daughter, Andrea, was hysterical knowing they left Charles behind.
