Although the cause of the fire may not be clear , it was alleged that the incident took place during load shedding. The heartbroken mother lost a nine year old and four year old . The third one would have been year old in a week .

The residents were left devastated as they also lost their belongings because of the fire. Although the belongings can be replaced, nothing can bring back the three young souls that were lost . The mother said that she had lost the precious souls which gave her a reason to live.
