Disaster can strike at anytime -- and for the Lebs family, it was the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

"We were on the way to my daughters basketball game when we got a call that there were flames coming out of the side and back of the house," said Brian Lebs, homeowner and father of five.

"We had just done some of the shopping for Thanksgiving. We have the biggest house in the family so we were going to have it here, now we don't know what we are going to do."

Now, with the holiday season around the corner, Brian and his family are left with more questions than they can answer.

"Me and my wife have been together a long time and we have never had something like this happen to us and now, we don't know who to talk to, who to ask for help... Who to reach out to for any kind of help."

And that's where the Red Cross stepped in. providing blankets, shelter, food and water

Kasey Kelly, Coordinator for the Quad City Red Cross says they are always there to help, no matter the circumstances.

"We typically provide for emergency provisions which is a few days. After that, we continue to meet with the family, work with the family to determine what the next step is.

But for this family, the next step seems a long way off.

"It was hard felt because there was so much done.. we had done so much to the house and now looking through and finding all the work that you had done, is now gone."

But, fortunately, things can be replaced but people can't, and everyone from the family is OK.
