Neighbour Zaid Dean says they were quick to help in whatever way possible to put out the fire.
“I saw the neighbors running with the hose and buckets. The neighbors tried to stop the fire however the fire got worse and we couldn’t have contained it without the help of fire officers.”
No one was injured in the fire incident.
NFA investigations are underway to determine the cause of the fire.
