A woman who was living in a Surrey barn has lost everything after the building broke into flames on Thursday.
Three horses and two dogs were killed in the fire.
Tina Reid says her friend Maygen Dembroski is devastated.
“Maygen is one of the most kind, caring, energetic and loving people that anyone will ever know. And it shows by how many people have banded together for her with what’s going on. She would give her shirt off her back to anybody. She loves horses. Her horses are her absolute everything.”
Reid says Dembroski is a ferrier and that horses are her life.
“I’ve interacted with those horses. They are sweet and they’re lovely. I would put my one and a half year old daughter on her mare that she lost and know that she’d be safe. They’re wonderful animals as well as her dogs. It’s just an absolute tragedy.”
Reid has started a GoFundMe page for her friend, which has raised more than $10,000 in about 24 hours.
