Four Year Old Pulled From Burning Building
A 4 year old boy was pulled from a burning building just around midday today when fire broke out in the 146 El Dorado Street house in South Ruimveldt where he lived with his mother. The mother Malika London had just left the child home alone as she went a few houses down just around the corner.
An alarm was raised about the fire at the house and neighbors ran out to render assistance. It was a neighbor who ran into the house and pulled the child out. The mother not knowing that the child was already saved was about to head into the burning building when relatives pulled her back.
The entire house was gutted. The Guyana Fire Service saved the nearby houses from any major damage. It is unclear how the fire got started but the young mother and her young son are thankful for life this evening.
