PG Fire leaves family of ten homeless

A waitress of Punta Gorda and her nine children are homeless tonight after a fire destroyed their home. Thirty-five year old Rosie Canelo, told police that she was asleep at around two on Sunday afternoon when the blaze woke her up.  Canelo says her children were outside playing at the time and none of them were hurt, but she lost the wooden structure, which measured eighteen by twenty four feet.  All the contents were also totaled.  Fire investigators have not yet ascertained what the cause of the blaze was.  Canelo has tallied her losses at over fifteen thousand dollars.  Another house in the yard was not affected by the fire.  And Canelo and her nine children have now sought refuge at her mother’s house.

    I hope she can get some help to replace her home. The cause is undetermined, she is single with nine children & still in her child bearing years. Is there a man out there willing to destroy a life to get out of child support? Just asking? A condom would have been less costly.
