$6,000 demolition done for free to support grieving Las Vegas mother


LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A demolition company has given the mother of a 3-year-old boy who died in a mobile home fire in December the ultimate gift. The company, Trusted Demolition, paid the full bill to have the charred mobile home demolished to install a new one.

It was the home Rhiannon Meacham shared with her two daughters and 3-year-old son Kaden until an early morning fire in December took Kaden’s life.

“It hits you right away,” said Susan Closson, owner of Trusted Demolition.

Closson’s company helped the Meacham family by demolishing nearly $6,000 for free.

“There’s nothing more tragic than losing a child, and I have two children myself and it was just the right thing to do,” Closson said.

Since the tragic fire that killed her son in December, Meacham has returned to the scene every day to demolish the mobile home piece by piece on her own. The house was unrecoverable and the insurance company did not respond.

In March, 8 News Now reported that thieves broke in and took what was left of Kaden’s toys.

That’s when Meacham’s mother, Tammy Cano, stepped in to call various demolition companies until Trusted Demolition answered.

“I would have been here for many months trying to do it by hand,” Meacham said.

Meacham was able to thank the company itself on Tuesday when the six-month ordeal finally came to an end, showing us that there is hope after tragedy.
