He added: "It has been a bit of a shock process really, no one really knows what is happening. We just know we need to try and help her get back on her feet and just do whatever we can to help benefit them. "I think she is coming round now and understanding now what has happened. Her priority at the moment is the children and making sure they are OK and just to try and get accommodation as soon as possible." James and his family have now setup a GoFundMe page to help his sister to "get her back to where she needs to be". A Merseyside Fire and Rescue spokesperson said at the time: "The main seat of fire was extinguished by around 9.30am and crews have continued to check for hot spots, with the fire fully extinguished by around 10.40am.
