Shern Williams – Fire victim
“Well I was sleeping and in my sleep I smelled a little smoke so I told me man and I got up to search my place. At the time when I was searching my place I didn’t see any fire or smoke in my house so I looked through my window and when I did that I smelled the smoke out there. At the time when I smelled the smoke my cousin told me to get the water. So I looked through the window towards them and when I looked I saw that the fire was high coming to my house and that was the time I hurry woke up my kids and my man and I told them to get out.”

It is believed the fire was caused by faulty electrical wiring.
