"You put one foot in front of the other and you just keep on going and if you fall you get up and you keep on going," Robert Hullander told WBIR.
Police found several victims of the fire along a road leading to the Hullander's neighborhood.
The Hullander's house burned down in the conflagration.
"It's things, you know," Robert Hullander said. "You can't buy your body, but you can buy things, so you just don't fret about what you've lost."
