A ten month old child, identified as Kerry Lewis, has succumbed to injuries sustained in last night’s fire at La Croix Maingot which destroyed a dwelling house.
Kerry’s twin sister, Kerisa, who was also injured, is still in hospital.
The children’s aunt, Lorianne Lewis, recalled that she was talking to her brother when the incident happened.
“When I reached on top of the road my mother told me:’Look! A fire.’ When I watched I saw a big flame,” Lewis said.
She said her mother ran towards the burning building and she later heard her screaming.
“When I went I saw it was my brother’s house that got burned,” Lewis stated.
She told reporters when she saw the injured children she knew that Kerry would not survive.
“I will miss him,” Lewis said tearfully.
A police investigation is currently underway, law enforcement officials have told the Times.
