(Scroll down for video) A father from Crown Heights, Brooklyn, New York, told a heartbreaking story about a fire that ripped through his house, once again.

Eli Raskin, a husband and a father of four, said that his family was left homeless three month ago after a fire broke out in the two story apartment building at 1365 Carroll Street corner Kingston Avenue, where his family and many other families reside.

After an extensive renovation process the family was finally able to return home and have stability in their life.

After living in a temporary home for three months the family finally moved back home and they were looking forward to be back to normal again. But shockingly, this did not last for long, as the night that they moved back home their home together with all their new belongings was destroyed once again, as another fire ripped through their building.

“They (the kids) were so excited to return home, everything was fixed after the last fire and look at this,” Raskin said pointing to the burned house. “We are very happy to be alive, it was a big miracle,” he added.

Eight firefighters were injured in this fast moving fire. One firefighter was taken to the hospital with severe burns, many residents were treated for injuries at the scene.

Shockingly, it started in the same two story home as it did three months ago. Now, fire marshals are calling the fire suspicious and they are investigating the situation.
