Blairmont fire spoils wedding celebration
A wedding celebration at No 4 Settlement, Blairmont, West Bank Berbice ended abruptly around 2 pm yesterday when it was learnt that the home of the bride’s grandparents was on fire a short distance away.
Kerry Dalana, 60, and his wife, Shiroon Dalana, 59, were living in the two-flat four-bedroom house with their two grandchildren, Faheem, 13, and Faneeza, 16.
The entire top flat of the house was destroyed along with furnishings, electronics and appliances.
Dalana said from the wedding house they saw the thick smoke billowing. He suspects that the fire was electrical in origin.
