We are so sorry for your loss of your son. Your story is a painful reminder about the danger of home fires. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

My son's name was Tristen he was killed in a house hold fire at the babysitters house . Everyone else in the house was able to get out beside my two year old son. I am 22 and my son was my only child. Prior to December 21,2011 I never knew how serious house fires were. I think everyone should be aware of the serious dangers of house fires. Please pay attention you may not think it will happen to your family, but believe me it could and it is a horrible loss.
