Unhappy Birthday


Maybe it was the candles?

A 73-year-old woman in Georgia is dealing with a tragedy on her birthday.

Eva Childers lost the home she built with her husband 56 years ago. Fire ripped though it Saturday on her birthday. 

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire. 

Childers told a TV station that she and her family were celebrating away from the home when the fire happened. 

"Time we got up there, the neighbors called and said my house was burning,". 

Childers said she's just glad she, her son and granddaughter who live at the home were gone at the time.
"I just don't want nobody hurt. It's hard to give up family," she said.


But this isn’t the first tragedy Eva has had to deal with on her birthday. Eva buried her husband on her birthday two years ago.


Plus, at that same time, she said her grandson killed his own brother. 

Eva was asked with so much tragedy happening on her birthdays, she's scared to have another one. 

"I don't know, I don't want to have anymore. Maybe it'll finish me off next time," she said. 

Childers said her insurance plan will assist her during the rebuilding process.
