Tragedy struck two members of the pro wrestling community as Impact Wrestling stars Ace Austin and Gia Miller’s home was engulfed in flames. They lost practically everything in the fire and now they are turning to fans for help.
A GoFundMe was opened up for Ace and Gia. They lost everything in that fire and it sounds like they need all the help they can get. You can check out the description for the campaign below.
At approximately 9:30 am on the morning of October 18, I (Georgia Lee, or some of you know me as Gia) was awoken by the distinct smell of smoke and a terrifying realization: our second-story apartment was on fire. Not only that, the fire had originated on the front porch, nearly trapping us inside. We went running through the flames, where we were met with a community of people rushing to our sides to get us to safety. Mere seconds from being trapped, Austin (Ace) and I escaped our home that was now engulfed in flames and smoke. All of our belongings, including our sweet cat Selina that had hidden out of fear, were trapped inside.
By some miracle, our baby girl was found alive and well buried under our ceiling and roof that had collapsed on top of her, shielding her from the flames and smoke. We are physically okay. Our little family is reunited. As for our home, it is gone. Something we worked so hard to build over the last year and a half, gone in minutes. We do not know what was able to be saved if anything.
Now, we have to rebuild. Like a phoenix, from these ashes we will rise. Any help, even the smallest amount, is appreciated.
As of this writing, they have raised around $5,400 of their $5,000 goal. That is great to hear, but they can probably use all the help possible at a time like this. It appears that Nick Jackson has chipped in $500 to the campaign so far as well.
