A Fresno County family is homeless and looking for help after a fire destroyed virtually everything they had.

Four people inside the Firebaugh home suffered severe burns after flames broke out last month.

When Francisco Guzman, sat down to tell his story he was surrounded by support. In Spanish, he said, it was a very windy day so there's nothing they could have done. His life melted away in a fire last month while he was at work. His mobile home in Firebaugh was destroyed, no possessions were spared, only lives, his wife, and his three kids.

Guzman said, when she's conscious, the first thing she does, is she asks for her children.

His wife, Yesenia rescued them. She pulled them out of the flames, one by one. Her first born, Francisco Jr. only remembers bits and pieces of it.

"Just run-- cause the top of it wasn't burning yet, just on the sides, and that's all."

What you can't see when you look at Francisco Jr. are the scars on his back from the fire. He was treated at the Leon's Peters Burn Center where his mom and twin sisters, Jennifer and Elizabeth, are healing.

When they came in, they were in critical condition-- Elizabeth has been upgraded to fair. Sandra Yovino, the nursing director, has been with them every step of the way.

"This family is in need, not only for their healthcare but everything that's gonna help them get back to a normal life."

For this family life is on hold and after recovery they have nothing to go home to, but ashes.

People are raising money to help the family pay bills and rebuild.
