"We don't want to be out here at four in the morning fighting another fire," said Hoffman.
The family looked for any more salvageable items, followed by a private construction firm boarding up the house overnight, said Hoffman.
According to Brown, her mother had lived in the home for approximately 10 years. Brown added that her mother will be taken care of by family until she figures out where she will live in the future.
"The house went up really quick," said McCord. "I was scared my grandma wasn't going to be okay."
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Rodgers' condition is unknown as St. Anthony's doesn't release patient information.
