    Aside from the property damages, you will most likely go through emotional stress whether you experienced the fire first hand, or arrived home after the fire took place. Good thing no one died in this incident but too bad for Mr. Huffaker he doesn’t have property insurance but he’s still lucky on the other hand at least he’s still alive and not been hurt.
