TikTokers Smithy family home burnt down in suspected arson


Popular British TikTokers The Smithy family’s house burned down in the early hours of July 15, along with their car. Nick, the father, alleged that two people tried to harm his family.

In a series of videos posted on their TikTok, Nick informed viewers that everyone could leave the house, including dogs.

The rest of the Smithy family is currently in a safe place while Nick appears to have slept in a van outside the house.

In one video, the destruction is seen, including a burnt-out car, a destroyed front garden and the badly damaged house. In another video, Nick shows the damage done to the girls’ bedroom, including large amounts of soot on the walls.

The videos went massively viral on Google, with the first three videos getting over a million views each. Video of the damage to the house has over two million.

How did the fire start?

It is not known at the time of writing what started the fire. However, it appears to have started on the outside due to heavy damage to the Smiths’ car.

Nick in the first video posted alleged that two people started the fire. In a later video, Nick alleges that one person filmed her while the other watched.

Nick said their actions “could have killed [his] family” as well as neighbors and friends.

In a tearful video, Nick tells those who allegedly carried out the attack “I don’t think you realized the consequences of what you did.”

At this point, he breaks down emotionally, telling the camera how “he worked so hard” to support the Smithy family, give his daughters the room they wanted, and “do the right thing”.
