VIDEO: Even though a devastating house fire took their home and belongings on Tuesday night, the Moniz family is praising God.
On Wednesday, professional surfer Kelia Moniz posted to Instagram that her parents' home in Hawaii had burned down overnight, incinerating everything inside. “My parents house, my childhood home went up into flames. Very crazy you have quickly things can change,” she wrote alongside a carousel of photos showing the house’s charred foundation and her parents, Tony and Tammy Moniz.
Moniz shared that under normal circumstances, the entire family, which includes five siblings and four grandchildren, would have been gathered inside during the time the fire started.
“So last nights scenario could have had a much different outcome,” she wrote. “Today we remember a house full of love, and so many (memories) thanking God we have my mom and dad here with us.”
