STAMFORD - A Stamford mother who lost everything in a massive house fire in January says she and her family are still struggling to survive.

Back on Jan. 31, the Squires family lost everything it had in a fire at their home on Mill Road.

Patti Squires says her family had been living there for 11 years and has since had to move into a hotel room. She says they have received an outpouring of support from the community, but the reality of losing everything has still been difficult.

Squires says she hopes to rebuild the home, but in the meantime, she's looking to rent an apartment.
