Fire in Lawrence Tavern Leaves Family Homeless

A family of seven from Lawrence Tavern, West Rural St. Andrew, are appealing to the public for help after a fire destroyed their home this morning.

Diane Wentworth, her four children and two others in her care, are now homeless after the fire.

When our news centre contacted the family today, Ms. Wentworth was too distraught to speak.

She sobbed as we spoke with her sister, Susan Wentworth.

The Councillor for the Lawrence Tavern Division, John Myers, is appealing for help on behalf of the family.
