Quick response and assistance by nieghbours in extinguishing a fire yesterday saved a Lot 6 Triumph East Coast Demerara home from complete destruction.
According to Shamdai Kamla, at around 9:00 hours, she heard a cracking sound while she and other family members were in the yard.

She disclosed that the assistance of her neighbouors, in addition to the early rains helped to dampen the exterior of the house and contained the fire, which was later extinguished, before the fire service reached.
