Home Lost 


A young girl looks on at the remains of where her bedroom used to be.         (10th January, 2007)

A young mother who had recently purchased 4x smoke alarms for her home was fortunate to escape with her family intact as a fire destroyed their home and personal belongings.
The smoke alarm sounded at 11:00 alerting the occupants of a fire and providing them just enough time to get safely from their home, unfortuantely due to the location and distance the local Fire Service were unable to save the home.
This may have been preventable if they had installed some fire extinguishers inside the home. The poor water pressure prevented them from being able to extinguish the fire with their garden hose once the fire established itself.
