Disabled veteran loses everything in suspected arson house fire

A house fire has left a local veteran homeless.

Carrie Reagan served her country in Iraq but came home a changed person.

Carrie says she now suffers from post traumatic stress disorder, and was working to get her life back in order when her home went up in flames earlier this month.

The fire, however, may not have been an accident. Carrie says she got a call from Macomb County Sheriff's Office, and was told that the fire was arson and the police will conduct an investigation.

"Everything, any kind of documentation of anything I've ever done, my life, is gone," she said.

The Army vet says her home owner's insurance payment was late, leaving her without coverage. She has reached out to the Veteran's Administration for assistance, but says more help is needed.

"I've been on phone with VA services but it didn't sound real promising," said Carrie.

Right now Carrie is staying with a friend until she can get back on her feet. But her friends are hoping the community will pull together to help this veteran who worked so hard to serve her country.

"I think that's what we're here to do on this earth is help, if you can help in any way" said Natalie Reagan, Carrie's friend.

"Anything is a blessing - even a prayer," said Carrie.
