Two children were burnt to death in a fire that late Thursday night gutted the Children’s Drop-in Centre on Hadfield Street, Georgetown.
Director of the Child Care and Protection Services at the Ministry of Social Protection, Ann Greene told Demerara Waves Online News that the two brothers ages five and six years perished.
Greene said authorities were told by staff members that the fire began by a security light on the building and quickly swept through the facility. “Tragic things do happen and sometimes we don’t know why,” she told Demerara Waves Online News.
