When you say faulty wiring does it mean that he was getting a drop, that the structure itself was not electricity ready?

“Yes the structure did not have a meter to it so it he was getting an illegal connection to it. It can cause disaster and it can cause a big loss when you compare the little that you think you are saving at the end of the day for example Mr. Adolphus lost his whole house and contents.”

The fire destroyed all that Easy Glenn owned. If you want to assist him, you can call him at cell phone number, 662-5128.
