  • That is so rude to say! You have no clue what this family may or may not have! Would you not except help? Let's say you were a single parent with four children and couldn't afford insurance for your home... Would you not accept help for you and your children? But wait... You wouldn't have gotten yourself in that situation in the first place right? Your too good not to have insurance! Which in this case is not true because this family does have insurance....stfu!

  • Mr. Spraggins happens to be my brother so I know for a fact that he has insurance!! I really hate when people jump to conclusions and don't know the facts. My brother and his family, through no fault of their own, have been forced into this situation because of the carelessness of one person who couldn't be bothered to put his/her cigarette out in their car's ashtray. Thank God for the volunteer fire fighters, the Red Cross and the volunteer who heard about the fire!!!! I think anyone who finds themselves in the same position would accept the help they were offered. Don't judge someone unless you have actually walked in their shoes.

  • It so happens that in this case the homeowner has insurance on his home. But, as is the case for many people in this recession, there is not always enough money in reserve to cover extra expenses when some idiot throws a lit cigarette out of their car window in a severe drought. The homeowner did not call the Red Cross. A volunteer happened to be in a position to hear about the situation and wanted to help. So don't be too quick to judge.
