Mom, daughter ‘lose everything’ in house fire in Mount Holly


MOUNT HOLLY, N.C. (FOX 46 Charlotte) — This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sherri Miller’s home in Mount Holly is likely a total loss after a fire destroyed it Wednesday evening.

Miller, a social worker, is used to tackling difficult situations, but now it’s her turn to receive a hand — but she says it’s not so easy.

“This is just a sample of what the children that I serve on a daily basis go through,” Miller said.

Along with social work, she’s used to spending her free time serving the homeless and others in need.

“One thing about me, I can’t turn the social worker off in me.”

That’s why Team TruBlue, a community organization, is trying to give it all back, sharing FOX 46’s initial story while asking for donations to help her family.

“I mean we lost everything,” Miller said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Miller and her 10-year-old daughter weren’t home when it happened, but she says fire officials say it’s likely an electrical fire that started in her room where a space heater was.

Miller says she recalls turning the space heater off.

Miller is warning other who mike think a fire will never happen to them — but faced with tragedy, all she wants is to get results for others.

“Think of me and do something for someone else’s family.”

Still, if you would like to reach out to Miller, you can call her at (980)288-3813.
