Fire of death
VALIANT EFFORTS BY ONE MAN failed to save the life of a 56-year-old epileptic but may have helped to prevent further disaster in a St Michael neighbourhood yesterday morning.
Cedric McCarthy died when flames engulfed his wood and wall house at Clarkes Road, Free Hill, Black Rock.
That fire also razed another wood and wall house and damaged two others.
It was neighbour Omar Goodman who leapt out of his bed and rushed to the McCarthy home. He said he was alerted to the flames and smoke around 9:30 a.m. and initially thought it was another house that was ablaze. (HLE)
