A POPULAR TikTok family has been left devastated after their home was torched in a suspected arson attack.
The Smithy Family shared shocking footage of their house in flames, with their 2.5million followers, on July 15, 2021.
Where is the Smithy family's house?
The horrific attack comes as the family has been targeted by trolls and their address was leaked online.
Last month, 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.

Two thugs can be seen approaching the house and checking the coast is clear.
One of them forces open the Smithy family car with a crowbar while his pal opens the door and pours flammable liquid into the car's back seats.
The car instantly bursts into flames and the yob can be seen fleeing the scene with his left arm on fire.
The family's cries can be heard as they catch sight of the blaze outside their home.
Dad Nick shared a dramatic video of the charred house with the car being gutted by flames in the drive.
He said: "We all got out the house OK, the kids are fine… the dogs are OK. The house is not OK. The kids are at a safe place.
"To the people who have done this, you could have killed our family and not only our family, my neighbours, my friends. It's unforgivable."
Addressing the perpetrators, Nick said: "My six-week-old boy was behind those windows when you done that.
"If this had been done at 12 o'clock at night, we might not have got down them steps."

A Gofundme page has been set up in an attempt to raise funds for the Smithys.
