Mother of 2 loses everything in house fire

Posted:
PORTLAND, Tenn. -

A fire destroyed a house in Portland Thursday afternoon, leaving a single mother of two children without a home.

Smokey Barn News reported the home located in the 100 block of Scattersville Road was fully involved when firefighters arrived just before 2:50 p.m.

Officials stated there was nothing to be saved from inside the residence.

The home is considered a total loss, but luckily, no one was injured.

Angel Seltzer, the homeowner and mother of two, told Smokey Barn News that the wall heater in her kitchen caught fire, starting the blaze in the back of her home.

She grabbed her 9-month-old son and ran from the home.  Her six-year-old daughter was not there at the time of the fire.

Seltzer, 27, is now scrambling to not only find a new home, but also replace all of her belongings.

Anyone who wishes to help the Seltzer family can leave donations at the Portland Fire Department located at 435 North Broadway.  They can be reached at 615-325-5649. Nighttime donations should be left inside the red door.

Those who wish to donate money instead of belongings can leave it with the police station dispatcher, right next to the fire hall in the same building.

If you'd like to donate items such as furniture, or to inquire about the mother's specific needs, contact Becky Brewington 615-482-2361.
