Alexis Allen, 21, lives in the house with her mother, Marlene Allen and sister, Jabria Seay.
Marlene Allen was visiting family in Alabama when the fire broke out. Her daughters returned home from a Christmas trip to Texas to find the family’s home in flames.
“It’s a horrible sight,” Alexis Allen said.
“Everything we own is in there,” she said. “All we have are the things we took on our trip and got for Christmas.”
Despite the loss, Alexis Allen said she was thankful the fire broke out when no one was home.
“It’s not like it’s the end of the world,” she said. “We have family. We’ll readjust.”
