Two brothers killed in fire

The charred remains of two brothers were discovered following an early morning fire in Christ Church.

The siblings, forty-two year old Ricky 'Slick Rick' Harewood and his brother, Mark 'Cazoo' Harewood lived at the back of the house at Lot #15 Fairview. Fire officers responded to the blaze around a quarter to one.

Lawmen are treating the deaths as unnatural.

What appears to be the main house received extensive water damage, while a galvanized section attached to the back of the home was destroyed.

Two fire tenders and nine firemen responded to the blaze.

The brother of the two men, killed in the fire, believes his brothers would still be alive, if they had only heeded his advice.

This after the blaze, in a matter of minutes reduced a family of four, to a family of two.

Swift action by Andrew Harewood, the oldest brother, was just enough to save their elderly mother, Lucine Bishop.

But the oldest brother says on many occasions, he had urged his siblings to cut out certain bad habits he thought could lead to a fire.

Breaking the news to his seventy-two year old mother was no easy task.

Neighbours and friends are remembered the two men, as extremely pleasant and helpful, despite their excessive drinking.
