MORGAN COUNTY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A Mountain Green family lost everything to a house fire and it wasn't insured. It's the latest in a series of disasters for the family.
"That was my home and this is where I felt safe," said Loydene Berg.
She is sifting through charred memories left behind by the fire responsible for destroying everything she owned accept the clothing on her back and the car she was driving.
Even her pet poodle perished in the fire.
"Things are just things, but it holds a lot of memories," said Loydene Berg.
Bergs biggest loss is the pictures and journals her husband left behind before his murder on April 27, 2000. Peter Berg was celebrating his son's birthday at Chevy's in Sandy when a gunman opened fire.
"That part just feels like a devastating loss all over again," said Berg.
She is responsible to fund the cleanup, but does not have the money. Morgan County told her it will clean up her home and give her the bill if she doesn't accomplish the project on her own in two weeks.
Berg says she doesn't have a plan or the money to accomplish the job.
She also doesn't know where she'll live and with no insurance to move forward the options are limited. Berg says she's taking it one day at a time.
The estimated damage cost is $300,000.
