Two minors die in fire


Two children  lost their lives on Saturday after a fire gutted their house at Lumpyrdi, Ummulong in West Jaiñtia Hills.

According to the residents of the area, the mother of the 5 year old and the 2 year old who has been identified as Man Challam had left the children at home as she set off to do the laundry.
Due to the house being located some distance from others, it took some time for people to notice the blaze and to act and by that time, it was already too late for the unfortunate children.
