    WHERE IS THE SMITHY FAMILY HOUSE?

    The horrific attack comes as the family has been targeted by trolls and their address was leaked online.

    In June 2021, Nick Smith, 33, revealed escorts and dozens of unwanted takeaways were sent to their home by sick pranksters.

    They had warned they needed to move after a series of incidents including a gang hurling stones at the family’s home as their newborn baby was sat in the front window, Nick said.

    They have now been left devastated as their semi-detached house in Bexleyheath, South London, was destroyed by the blaze.

    Despite being thankful his family made it out safely, dad Nick Smithy, 33, is crushed after spending ”all of their hard-worked money” renovating their home.

    “The house is not okay,” he said in a video to his more than 2.5 million followers on the video-sharing app.

    FAMILY FUN

    On their TikTok account The Smithy Family, they share videos from their family life at home with their kids to 1.4m followers.

    Nick explained that now they have a large number of followers on TikTok, he began by trying to collect some donations of presents and it soon snowballed.

    He said that he’s been really blown away by how people have come together to help others, collecting over 5,000 Christmas presents for those struggling this year.

    Nick said, “Someone donated 2,000 gifts, from a storage unit. The lady used to buy surplus stock from shops, so it’s all brand-new in boxes and she got in touch and said if we can clear it out, we can have it.”

    FIRE WILL BE INVESTIGATED

    London Fire Brigade said the flames appeared to spread from the burning car to the house.

    More than 20 firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze after it erupted.

    The cause of the fire is now being investigated and there have been no arrests.

    A LFB spokesperson said: “We were called to reports of a car alight that had spread up the outside of the house.

    “There were a number of mobility scooters parked outside which had caught alight and were producing a large amount of smoke and flames.

    “Everyone was out of the building before we arrived, and crews worked incredibly hard to prevent further damage to the inside of the property and to neighbouring properties.”

    ‘COULD HAVE BEEN SEVEN DEAD PEOPLE’

    The former brickie remained grateful that his family had managed to flee unscathed as “there might have been seven dead people.”

    “For those 15 seconds of fun in your eyes, it could have taken away many years from my family.”

    Lisa said: "I've known them since the day we moved in nine years ago.

    "I was passing the kids over the back fence because they couldn't get out the front door.

    "The house is completely black so I think they've been put in temporary safe accommodation.

    "It's not the first time they've had trouble with haters or whatever you call them."
