yes it was really sad i have know that family for along time Todd used to live with me and my family when he was younger he lived with us for 6 years and i really hate this had to happen to him he was a annoying little boy and at times i would whoop up on him lol because he would get on my nerves but i really liked him i thought of him as my little brother it hurts to think of it we got his pictures of him out yesterday and looked at them and we made a home video when he was living with us and it just brings tears to your eyes everytime you think back of the times that you spent with someone and then something like this happens. I havent seen him for a long time so i bet he had changed, it dont seem like he should have been that old and a baby 6 months old i really feel for them.

How is there any progress to be made? The house burnt down. Is there a suspect for arson or something?

well they was all partying and one of the people was drunk and smoking so they think that might be what caused it or maybe something else, but i hope they find out.

The person that was drunk and smoking didn't cause the fire. There is no way that cigarette could cause a fire of that magnitude that quickly.

Lets stay with the facts,and not all hearsay.

The house was old,but in eyesight of the local Volinteer Fire department.I was told (hearsay)they were next door to the fire chief's house and he
was next door to the fire department.

Majority of the firefighters 1st to respond,were all neighbors.Within minutes of the call,they were on the scen.The house was at time enguffed in flames.

I know from speaking to one of them,that it was one of the hottest fires,they had ever seen.

According to reports,there were 5 people in the house.

Anyways,even tho the house was really old,NO cigarette could have started that fire.

If dude fell asleep,and started the fire,with a lit

Why was the house enguffed in flames,after he got out?

It moved way to quickly for him to get out of the house,and try to help the others still in the house.Only to end up a total loss of the house with 2 people dead ,next door to the fire department..

why are you saying they was next door at the fire chiefs house when they was all at that house partying. Martha said they all was cutting up and having a good time on tv when i watched it, i guess she failed to mention they was drinking too. It is just as much her fault that that happened than anyone else she shouldnt allowed that man to be in the house drinking and she said herself to me when i was at the funeral that they went to bed and they thought that man left, but he didnt and the next thing they knew the house was on fire explain that to me. I think if they really tried harder they could have got todd out or even put something down for him to jump out of a window, but they was worried about getting themselves out first.
