An Abilene woman lost her home in a fire just days before Christmas.

Around 11 p.m. Saturday, Carie Schafer’s neighbors at Big Tree Mobile Home Park spotted the fire and called 911.

“It's Christmas. Everything I own is in that home,” said Schafer. “The only thing I’ve got is what I’ve got on.”

She and her dog Scooter made it out.

But four puppies were still inside.

“Nothing else matters as long as I get my dogs back,” Schafer said. “That's all that matters.”

Firefighters said the home is a total loss.

The cause is under investigation by the Abilene Fire Marshal’s Office.
