Granny loses all to fire

Granny loses all  to fire

That was the sad cry of Sylvia Hunte as she sat outside the burnt-out shell of what used to be her family home  in Chapel Land, St Philip, yesterday.
The 73-year-old pensioner lost the three-bedroom wall house she shared with her daughter and three grandchildren and all her possessions to a mid-morning fire on Monday.  
Hunte said that at about 11 o’clock she was sitting at a table sorting out some bills when she saw smoke, and when she got up to check she saw the bed in one of the bedrooms burning.
“I picked up the first thing I saw, which was a saucepan, but the water pressure was so low.”
