Three children under ten perished in an early Thursday morning house fire at Mocha, East Bank Demerara, Guyana.

Media reports identified the deceased as eight-year-old Timothy Kippins; six-year-old Trayshaw Kippins; and one-year-old, Zhlia.

According to Guyana Chronicle, their 23-year-old mother, Tracy Flur, was at work as a security officer when she got the tragic news.

The publication said Flur confirmed that the youngsters were alone at home, but relatives who lived two plots away would check on them when she was working nights.

And the newspaper quoted her blaming her abusive former boyfriend for the devastating fire, saying he had threatened to set the house ablaze.

Neighbors said that firefighters had to walk almost 20 minutes through a muddy dam to reach the fire scene.

  1. 1st and foremost it is a tragedy that no one should endure and the mother have to live with this for the rest of her life basically. Some of my Guyanese counter parts was debating this news highly but consequentially, the mother of 23 was somewhat left to toil for her 3 babies who are in heaven RN. She was just 15 when she give birth if the maths work out to be correct base on the news and to deal with such quarters perhaps they were using kerosene lamps or candles. This could have lead to the demise of 3 young youths! sad… extremely sad

  2. This is heartbreaking. Taken too young : ( I really hope the former boyfriend was not evil enough to carry out his threats of setting the house ablaze, especially knowing that there are three little innocent souls in there. R.I.P. little angels.
