The incident also rendered several families homeless, while properties worth thousands of dollars got destroyed.
According to the owner of the four bed-room building, Margret Teah, the fire incident occurred over the weekend as they were out door.

Madam Teah said: “We forgot that my 4-year-old grandson, Elton Wilson, was sleeping in one of the rooms when the fire was noticed.

“All efforts to contain the fire did not materialize, because most occupants were out door while neighbors were at sleep,” the 71-year-old Seamstress said.

Meanwhile, widow Teah is appealing to the Liberian Government, friendly individuals and institutions to come to their aid.
