Singer Cam using hit Burning House for good

Rising country star Cam is using her hit song Burning House to promote home fire safety.
The singer/songwriter was inspired to write the chart topper after having a dream in which she attempted to save her ex-boyfriend from a fiery abode. Now, she’s giving back to those who have lived the unfortunate reality of seeing their house go up in flames.
Cam recently teamed up with bosses at Avenue Bank to donate an undisclosed amount to a family in Buffalo, New York after their house burned down. The fire claimed the life of Demetrius Thomas Johnson Sr., who died after rescuing his fiancee and three children from the flames.
In addition, Cam has joined forces with the American Red Cross and is a spokesperson for their 2Steps2Minutes Home Fire Awareness Campaign, a programme which aims to save lives in home fires.
“It is an honour for me to team up with the Red Cross and help spread the important message of 2Steps2Minutes Home Fire Awareness Campaign,” Cam says in a statement. “After performing Burning House at my shows, fans have shared with me unfortunate stories of loved ones they lost to home fires. Although the inspiration behind this song I wrote was based on a dream I had, I want to help others prevent a nightmare from happening in their own homes. Each year, home fires cause more injuries and deaths than all domestic disasters combined. It’s a terrible statistic that I know we can change.”
“Tragedies like the one in Buffalo happen far too often in this country, but we can change that,” Red Cross chief marketing officer Neal Litvack added in the statement. “Thanks to artists like Cam, we can spread the word that fire drills aren’t just for school, so check your smoke alarm and make sure everyone can get out in two minutes.”
