Nine have nowhere to go
Nine people are homeless and pondering their next move after fire destroyed two houses at Coconut Walk, Hastings, Christ Church, on Friday night.
Shirley Burt, her five children and three grandchildren escaped with just the clothes on their backs, as the fire claimed all of the possessions in the two uninsured houses.
Up to press time, Burt’s daughter, Sophia and her three children, Kemar, 16, Kaneisha, 14, and seven-year-old Kaliyah Edwards had no idea where they would spend the night.
Only the charred foundation and burnt possessions remain where the two houses once stood side by side. (RB)
