There was a graffiti on the garage which read, “Biden 2020,” “BLM” and an “A” with a circle. There were also two 3 x 5 Trump flags on the trailer and truck.

Denis saw three people running, but he was focused on his children’s safety.

The family said they got the Trump flags a week ago. Dennis, who is a contractor, argued the work site after showing support for Trump. They noticed people driving slowly past their house and taking photos of the flag since they put it up.

Deana, the wife, said she is just happy that they are alive. The family saved four puppies from the burning garage. They expressed shock at being targeted for political beliefs. Dennis is still shocked that people would target others over political views.

Although one of the surveillance cameras was blocked, the other cameras are now with the authorities.
