Valentino Choco – Fire Victim

“Well my wife left home around 11 on Thursday morning while I was already out for work. She went to her mom and took my son for a visit and she was there the whole time and at the end of the day I came from work and went to my mom. At around 2:30 she took my son to the hospital because he was sick then she came back and dropped my son at my mom’s house and she went to meet me at my mom. After that we went out to have something to eat about 9pm we went back home. One our way home we passed by our street I didn’t have the key and we went to pick up my son. By the time we turned back the house was already in flames. I tried to salvage something but I couldn’t the house was already up in flames. Everything in there is gone, right now I am with nothing. Everything in there was probably valued around $15,000 and the only thing I suspect right now is arson, that is all I can say.”
