Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- The family came home to find the inside of their house blackened by smoke and flames.

Quang Son and Lan Vo say it was their dream home.

The couple had just moved into this house with their two teenagers in May.

Now, their beautiful home is charred and stripped on the inside.

As fire crews battled flames at his Fargo home, Quang Son was working in the mailroom at the Forum.

When the fire chief called, he didn't want to believe what he was hearing. His beautiful home - badly burned.

Son: "I can't even, almost can't even drive home, but I try to get here as fast as I can. It's just, something you just don't want to expect in your life to get a fire like this. I don't know what to say, it's just terrible."

Son, his wife Lan Vo, and their two teenagers just moved in a few months ago. But their new neighbors, who describe themselves as a close-knit bunch, were watching out for them.

John Bagu was home with his family, when his wife saw the flames and called 9-1-1.

John Bagu: "That's kind of devastating to hear that, that they've worked all their life to get to this house, they were so happy to be here."

The family is thankful that nobody was inside. But now they have to rebuild everything they worked so hard for.

Son: "It's a beautiful neighborhood, this was our dream home that we have, we worked hard for this."

Son says insurance will cover the damage and they can hopefully start to rebuild soon.
