CREEK COUNTY, Okla. — A family of 10 is counting its blessings, despite losing most everything in a fire.

It happened last week in rural Creek County. Their home is a total loss but getting their mind around that has taken Kara and Daniel Miller a few days to realize.

They saw the damage for the first time today since fire swept through last week.

"The loss of it is just more than I really wanted to bear, it took so much away from us,” Daniel Miller said. “Thankfully it didn't take none of us away."

This is one of the cars for the Miller family. As you can see, it's a total loss along with the home.

The Millers’ 14-year-old daughter was the only one home and had fallen asleep in the car out front, waiting on family to come home.

Neighbors say there was a power outage before they saw the Miller home engulfed.

“A stranger happened to see her in the car and got her out,” Kara Miller said.

The rest of the family was at school or work.

The Millers have lost all of their possessions and are thankful for family and friends who have stepped up.

Kara says that it's daunting to think there is absolutely nothing left of their former lives and they are grateful for any kindness.

"We need like furniture, appliances, anything,” she said. “Anything would help.”
