Fire razes Grove home
By Desilon Daniels
Despite the efforts of 4 fire trucks, a Grove mother of three suffered millions of dollars in losses following an afternoon fire which destroyed her home of 18 years.
Vanessa Higgins’s Lot 55 Grove Public Road, East Bank Demerara home, which she shared with her 8-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter, was completely destroyed shortly after she left home around 2 pm to attend a church member’s funeral yesterday. According to the woman, she had just arrived at the church when she received a call from a neighbourhood mechanic who informed her that her home was on fire. Initially, she had believed it was a joke because she had not left home long before the call. However, the man’s insistence drew her from the funeral back to her home.
