Their home was gone, along with almost all of the belongings and memories. But the thing that seemed to hurt Miranda Gadberry the most was the fire that consumed her home on Christmas Eve also destroyed her daughter's Christmas gifts.
Gadberry, her husband, David Newcomb, and the couple's 2-year-old daughter, Breanna Newcomb, were visiting Gadberry's father, John on Christmas Eve. At about 8 p.m., a family member called and told them their Long Branch Road mobile home was on fire.
Gadberry's initial thought was that she was glad her husband was with her.
