US mother receives huge reaction over incredible post-fire interview

The clip, which was aired on News On 6, has been viewed millions of times.

A US MOTHER of three has become an internet sensation after giving an animated account of escaping a fire to a news channel.

The clip of Michelle Dobyne, which was aired on News On 6, has been viewed millions of times and received a huge reaction.

Locals have also been collecting donations and clothes for the mother.

Describing how she found out about the fire, Michelle Dobyne said:

“My friend came to the door, I was on the phone cooking me and my baby some breakfast and she said ‘Something is wrong, it’s popping’.

I said ‘What?’ and she said ‘Yeah’ and I said ‘Naww’.

“So the girl came downstairs, she came out of her apartment with no shoes on and I said: ‘Girl it’s cold outside.’ She said something ain’t right; I said ‘Aw man’ and she said ‘Aw man, the building is on fire.’

I said ‘Nah, what?’ I got my three kids and we bounced out. Nuh-uh, we ain’t gonna be in no fire. Not today.
