All lost to fire
Few things are more devastating than losing everything to a fire.
A lifetime of memories could be erased in a few minutes while the horrified family could only stand one side and watch it all go up in smoke.
This was the reality for Angela and Leroy Downes as well as Angela’s daughter, Angela Haynes, and grandchildren Aryauna and Shiann. They were the occupants of one of the houses in Parris Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael, which were destroyed by fire during an early morning blaze yesterday.
Haynes said her mother had been living in the house for more than 40 years and she herself had been there for all her life, but all that was left now were charred remains.
The other destroyed home was also occupied by a family – Shawn and Gale Carter and their three children. (CA)
