School for the teens has been affected, as well.
His son’s band director has given his son a trumpet to use in place of the $3,000 instrument the family lost in the fire but his daughter, who is attending junior college, lost her textbooks, according to Pool.
The fire has also led to medical bills for Pool.
Pool, who is disabled after several heart attacks and hasn’t worked in five years, said he spent three days in the hospital following the fire due to smoke inhalation and concern about his heart.
Any help would be appreciated, Pool said.
