A massive and unexplained fire has swept through an apartment in Brigette Village, Tombo, claiming the lives of three young children.
Nadiatu Bendu, aged 2, Fatmata Turay, aged 3, and Mohamed Turay, aged 12, all residents of the village, tragically lost their lives when the fire engulfed their home while they were napping.
The heart-wrenching event unfolded as the children were resting inside their house. The fire, shrouded in mystery, rapidly consumed the entire apartment, leaving the neighborhood in shock and mourning. The untimely loss of these innocent lives has cast a shadow over the village, as friends and family struggle to come to terms with the tragedy.
In a twist of fate, 6-year-old Philip Turay and his mother, Mabinty Turay, survived the blaze but sustained severe burns on their bodies. The two victims are currently in critical condition, receiving urgent medical attention at the Tombo Government Hospital. Their recovery remains uncertain, but the community has rallied around them with prayers and support.
The landlord of the fire-stricken house, Abi Turay, is cooperating with law enforcement officials as they conduct investigations into the cause of the fire. The circumstances surrounding the blaze are yet to be determined, and authorities are working tirelessly to uncover any possible leads.
