Impact Wrestling stars Ace Austin and Gia Miller lost their home in an apartment fire on Monday morning in Dayton, Ohio.
Austin and Miller took to Twitter on Monday to let fans know they were alright, as is their pet cat. Miller noted that she woke up at around 9:30am from the smell of smoke, realizing that their second story apartment was on fire.
Miller noted on their GoFundMe account how the fire originated on their front porch, nearly trapping them inside. They ran through the flames and were met by neighbors and firemen rushing to get them to safety. She noted that they were just a few seconds from being trapped, but escaped as their home was engulfed in flames and smoke. They lost all of their belongings, but later found their pet cat, alive but buried under the collapsed ceiling.
“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,” she wrote.
