TUBMANBURG, Bomi – Police and fire service officials are investigating the cause of a fire that left a victim’s body burnt beyond recognition in Tubmanburg’s Vai Town Two community.
The four-bedroom house succumbed to a fire disaster on Sunday morning, but it was only on Tuesday that the body was discovered when some survivors had gone in to search for their personal items.
Multiple families shared the home, and some fire victims believe that the unrecognized body belongs to Amos Borbor, who also lived in the house.
Siah Karnley, who also lived in the house, said she had not seen Borbor since the incident occurred. However, she and other fire victims revealed that Borbor had been exhibiting strange behaviors and threatened to burn the house on several occasions.
“These few days, my brother been acting like someone who’s crazy – he always saying that he will burn the house to aches,” she said.
Keifa Morris, another occupant of the house, also believes that Borbor may have set the building ablaze.
“For me, I believe that it is Amos Borbor that committed this act because every night hour, this guy will be disturbing us until somedays, [we got] no sleep,” Morris added.
Finda Tamba, another victim who lost all her belongings in the fire, said she would now have to build her life from scratch, as everything she had labored for was gone.
“This is a complete setback to our lives – I was unable to take out anything from the house,” Tamba said. “The fire came at 3 a.m. when we were sleeping.”
Meanwhile, the police are still trying to determine with certainty the identity of the body. The local fire service detachment is also investigating the cause of the fire.
