Family rebuilding after massive fire
SPOKANE, Wash. -

A Spokane family is rebuilding after a fire ripped through their home on Friday night.

"It's just weird seeing your own house burn and not being able to do anything," 16-year-old Reno Morley said.

Reno Morley lived at the home with his mother, brother and grandmother. The house is owned by Faith Baptist Church where the family been going for almost a decade.

All of Reno's family except his grandmother were actually at the church when the fire started.

"We got a phone call from Grams that the house was on fire when I heard the sirens it just scared me more," Sarah Morley, Reno's mother, said.

Firefighters say the fire was stubborn. It spread quickly and was tough to put out. The Morley's thought they lost everything but were surprised by some of the salvaged items, including baby pictures of the boys. 

"I wanted to cry. To come back Saturday and have those things brought out to us. It was a joy," Sarah said.

Their two cats are still missing. The house could be a total loss but insurance will have the final say on that.

The family just wants to say thank you to all the firefighters who risked their lives to put out the fire.

"They were there in the blink of an eye, as soon as you called 911, they were there and they were so precious, during the fire and during the recovery," Elaine Morley, Reno's grandmother, said.

The Morley's are leaning on their church for support. They're now staying with members of their church.

"They surrounded us with love Friday night and took care of us all day yesterday," Sarah said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
