Their vehicles parked outside were also stolen.

Smoke was pouring out of her home when Melissa Greenlaw returned from a 20-minute trip to the grocery store. “My first instinct was to run into the house and make sure all my kids had gotten out safely,” she said. The 30-year-old mother of eight said the fire on Oct.

“We’re just trying to get through day-by-day, the next thing on the list, and try and concentrate on the hundreds of good things that have happened instead of the terrible thing that’s happened,” says Benroth, reflecting on the kindness and generosity of people in the days since.

After spending more than a year planning the holiday, Benroth had been looking forward to a fun time away with her mother and sister, her husband Brad and their two daughters, ages 10 and seven. The family left for California in the early hours of Oct. 12, revelling in the magical fantasyland until a friend’s Oct. 15 call alerted them that their house was burning.

Not wanting to cut the vacation short for the sake of her kids, the family stayed in California for the rest of the week before arriving back in Regina on Sunday.

They came home to nothing but the summer clothes in their suitcases.

“Every time I turn around someone else has done something with so much kindness and it’s hard to dwell on what we’ve lost when there’s so much good that’s happening for us,” she said. “It makes me cry more than the fire.”

Her husband’s boss set the family up with a hotel room so they had somewhere to go immediately after landing back in Regina. When they arrived at the hotel, people had already dropped off things like winter clothing for the kids, snacks and toiletries. Benroth’s sister-in-law also started a GoFundMe, which has raised more than $13,000 for the family.

“It’s just absolutely amazing. You don’t even realize how many people you know in your life, and then all of a sudden everyone’s there for you,” she said.

Although her daughters returned to school on Tuesday and both Benroth and her husband will soon go back to work, she said finding a sense of normal in day-to-day life has been difficult. Simple tasks like making lunches are nearly impossible when living out of a hotel room.

Her daughters have also struggled to adjust.

“They have moments when they’re scared. They want to take all their belongings with them wherever they go because they weren’t safe at home,” said Benroth.
