Share post:

A MOTHER and her two children, along with another tenant at Mills Apartment in Haynesville, St James, are now homeless after an early morning blaze destroyed the two storey, multi-room complex.
Rasheeda Hollingsworth, 27, her children Zachary Hollingsworth and Zarique Gittens, seven and three years old, respectively, along with the other occupant, Ian Walker, lost all their personal belongings in the fire that started just after 7 a.m. yesterday.
Two water tenders and a water tanker with 12 fire personnel under the command of Chief Fire Officer Wilfred Marshall responded to the blaze.
They were able to contain the fire to one section of the 27-room apartment block, despite a water shortage in the area.
Two firemen were injured by falling debris and were treated on the scene by paramedics. They also examined Rasheeda Hollingsworth for an injury to a hand, as well as her children, who were traumatised by the incident.
