A Texas mom recalled “screaming” her tragic kids’ names as they burned to death in a house fire amid the widespread power outages last week.
Jackie Nguyen’s kids, Olivia, 11, Edison, 8, and Colette, 5, as well as her own mother, Loan Le, died early last Tuesday morning in the blaze at Nguyen’s Sugar Land home.
“I was just standing there screaming and screaming and screaming their names hoping they would come out of their rooms and basically jump over so that we could get out,” Nguyen told CNN. “I just remember feeling like it was so dark and I can still kind of hear everything crackling around me.”
. . .The close-knit kin gathered around the fireplace and played card games before turning in for bed at around 9:30 p.m.
Nguyen’s memory from that fateful night is spotty but she does remember not being able to get to her children’s rooms on the second floor and yelling for them as the fire raced through their home.
