The three siblings who early this morning perished in a fire in Hopeful Village in west Kingston have been identified.
They are nine-year-old Abigail Reid, a student of Iris Gelly Primary School; 18-year-old Bebita Harris, a sixth-form student of Tarrant High School; and 15-year-old Lenardo Morris, a student of Excelsior High School in Kingston.
Reports are that the siblings, who live alone, were asleep between midnight and 2:00 am when the incident occurred.
The children reportedly lived alone but are occasionally checked on by a relative, because their mother is reported to have left the community due to a matter now before the courts.
Residents are on Friday insisting that the fire was an act of arson, as on Thursday, a relative, who is said to be of unsound mind, had threaten to burn the house that is occupied by the three children down.
When OBSERVER ONLINE contacted Emilio Ebanks, public relations officer at the Jamaica Fire Brigade, he said he was not able to comment on it being the work of arsonists as investigators were still piecing together information at the scene.
