One of the fires destroyed the home of John Brown. He'd lived there for 32 years. He was not home at the time of the fire because he went to church with his brother.

"My whole life is in that house, everything I own is in that house," Brown told Fox 2. "But everything I love is sitting in that car and that's my family."

Brown said he's thankful no one was hurt.
