    I am glad that everyone is alive and no injuries at all. Including the firefighters and the animals. You can always replace items, but you can never replace humans or animals.

    But by looking at this house, it don’t look large enough to hold that many people at all. Maybe a family of 4 or 5 tops. I am guessing that these people are here illegally? No I don’t know what country they are from and I really don’t give a rats rear what country they are from. But that many people in one house has to be illegal in so many ways, even if they are citizens of this country.
