Boy you weren't kidding HM-what a mess is right!! That's a shame, I don't think anything is worse than fire in a home, they claim they can get the smoke smell out, but I don't think so. Hope your wife's cousin has better luck Tator. The young lady who is the bar manager at our VFW just lost her home to fire also about a month ago. Big custom A-Frame house, mostly cedar, went up like fuel burning. Total loss for her and her family, they lost EVERYTHING. Anyone who has had to endure this has my sympathies.
