Uninsured family lose everything in house fire

Greymouth, West Coast

Danielle is a hard working single mother of two.

On Tuesday the 11th of January after a days work Danielle prepared her dinner and went outside to play with the family dog Polu. After being alerted by the fire alarm she come back inside to find the airfryer she had dinner cooking in on fire. Within minutes the house was engulfed with flames.

Danielle only managed to take a few things infront of her meaning the family have lost absolutely everything they own.

Danielle and her two daughters had only been living in their rental for the past two months.

She works so hard to provide for her two girls - this fire is a massive set back for the three of them.

Posted by: Danielle Wicks

To our friends, family, workmates, community and beyond I don't really know where to begin what a two weeks it has been since that devastating night. it has been a surreal time .

Thankfully our family are safe .

we have been truly blessed with an outpouring of help and support from friends, family and people we do not know. I wish I could thank you all individually there is just too many.

From the firemen/women on the night, friends, to businesses ,to children doing lemonade stand and water slides (parents be very proud of them)daughters friends buying and setting up rooms ,friends taking days off to help ,friends helping with pets ,looking after me ,strangers messages and help /donations.

The list just goes on. Although it's been overwhelming and there is a lot of unanswered messages it all means a lot thank you its not unnoticed.

We certainly have a long road ahead but it is comforting to know we are not alone.

Words cannot express the gratitude to each and everyone ,THANK YOU
