FEDERAL HEIGHTS, Colo. -- A family in Federal Heights lost everything in a fire last week that sent one woman to a hospital.

The FOX31 Problem Solvers are putting out a call to help the family.

With no insurance on their mobile home, the Davis family isn’t sure what’s next for them.

They are staying in a small Red Cross-funded hotel room in Arvada. Brea Davis, her mom Angela and baby Natalia have been taking life one day at a time for the past week.

“I opened the door and that’s when I noticed [the fire],” Davis said.

The cause of the fast-moving fire hasn’t been determined, according to firefighters.

Davis said she thought the fire was small enough to put out herself when she first noticed flames on her porch.

“I went and I grabbed my mom,” she said. “By the time I went and grabbed her and came back, it was already double in size.”

Angela Davis, now out of the hospital, was burned on her neck and hands. She also suffered severe smoke inhalation.

“I kind of got stuck in a loop,” Angela Davis said. “I kind of panicked.”

The three were able to escape through a window. They are thankful to be alive, but they are struggling to get by.

Donations for the family are being accepted through a GoFundMe account.
