House catches fire with child, 4, left alone inside

Mother had gone visiting next door

A boy, 4, who was home alone and unattended, is alive and unhurt after he escaped from his house, which became engulfed in flames and was completely destroyed by fire at about 9:00 Sunday morning in Maskall Village.

Police reports are that the boy’s mother left the boy in the house and went to her mother-in-law’s house, located just next door.

Shortly after, the house caught fire. The mother reported that she rushed home to save her son, but he had already been saved by people in the area. They assisted in putting out the fire, but the house and all her belongings were nevertheless destroyed.

The National Fire Service has launched an investigation to ascertain the cause of the fire.
