“I’ve just never seen anything move so fast … The flames were bigger than trees.”

The couple was able to evacuate safely with their two sons, but left some of their most prized possessions – including the wedding rings – in the house.

Jason and Chloe decided to drive back to the property, only to find that it was already going up in flames.

“I’ve watched it all burn down,” said an emotional Chloe, adding that the house had been in her family for over 35 years.

‘I’ve thought of everything. My children’s ultrasounds. My children’s footprints from birth, ”she continued.

The Carrolls returned 48 hours later to find their home reduced to a pile of smoking rubble and nearly all of their belongings turned to ashes.
