Devastating moment, fitness influencer Grace Torres watches her house be ‘completely destroyed’ by a raging fire — and why it makes her think about what’s important in life
A young family is left devastated after their home was left ‘completely destroyed’ after a raging house fire.
Social media influencer and former fitness competitor Grace Torres watched her property in Sutton, NSW go up in flames around 4:30pm Thursday.
Emergency services were called to reports of a house fire on Read Road, just north of the ACT boundary, with several neighbors already trying to contain the flames to the garage.
The fire is believed to have started from a faulty electrical appliance in the garage and quickly spread to the rest of the house.
