Nashad Rouse writes on a GoFundMe he had left his Mill Road home on April 5 when he got a call from his brother: The house was up in flames.

Rouse, an aspiring photographer and videographer, lost all of his business equipment and tools, belongings, clothing, and the family's five puppies.

"On the afternoon of April 5th my whole life changed for the worst," he said.

"All we are left with is the clothes on our backs and the slippers on our feet. 

"Anything that can be contributed to help us get into a new home is greatly appropriated."
