Mom loses her 5 young children & boyfriend in horrific fire
Anna Angel from Tiffin, Ohio had been working at Burger King for a couple of hours on September 15 when she got the devastating news that her mobile home was on fire. Angel, who does not own a car, rode her bike over to Highland Trailer Park. The Tiffen Police Department had received a call about the fire at about 7:45 a.m., but by the time responders got to the scene the trailer was engulfed in flames. The story only gets more heartbreaking from here...

Inside the trailer were Angel's boyfriend 25-year old Timothy Fresch and their 1-year-old son Domanic Fresch, as well as Angel's other children: 4-year-old Trinitie Huey, 3-year-old Sunshine Huey, 5-year-old Stormie Huey, and and 6-year-old Tiara Angel. Firefighters were able to get all 6 people out in 12 minutes, but they were all pronounced dead at the hospital.
This is absolutely heartbreaking and I can't even begin to imagine the excruciating pain that Anna Angel must be in. She lost her entire family all at once. Her beautiful children were all so young. Imagine Angel's grief at having to identify all of her children at the hospital.
Angel's sister says relatives were told by the hospital that Fresch and the children all died of smoke inhalation. Angel's sister also said that Angel wasn't allowed to see her boyfriend's body because of the severity of his burns.
The cause of the fire has not been determined and a state fire marshal's investigator said there are no signs of anything suspicious.
I just keep coming back to Anna Angel and what she must be going through. She lost her family and her home. I hope her community, friends, and any extended family she may have stand by her and help her through this incredibly difficult time.
