Statement regarding the serious fire at Hirwaun home on Saturday 19th May 2018
We were concerned to hear that a serious fire broke out at the home of one of our tenants in Hirwaun on Saturday 19th May 2018. Thankfully no-one was hurt, but Alina Joseph and her 7 children have lost their home and many of their possessions as firefighters fought to bring the fire under control.
Michelle Reid, Chief Executive of Cynon Taf Community Housing Group said,
“We are so thankful that Alina and the children are all safe. Our staff attended over the weekend to secure the home and to offer any immediate assistance. We will continue to support the family with their immediate and long-term housing plans. The response from the local community has been outstanding, and I hope that in time this will help the family to come to terms with their ordeal.”
