Devastating fire sparked by a heater
I was sad to receive the following article this morning where two young toddlers have perished in a bedroom fire in Geelong East, Victoria.
It is believed a toy fell onto a bar heater, which was turned on earlier in the morning, and ultimately sparked a small fire, causing smoke. This silent small fire went on to engulf the entire room with smoke and the girls sadly could not be saved.
This is a horrible reminder of how careful we need to be when it comes to our young and defenseless. This is a terrible situation for the family and my thoughts are with them, an easy mistake to make for any of us leaving a toy in range of the heater.
I hope that by me sharing this tragic story it could prevent even just one event like this occurring again.
