I lost a school friend in a house fire back in 2003. We had lost contact at the time so I was a bit gobsmacked when I heard the news. Her brother shared with me that they thought the fire was deliberately lit. It was tragic. She was there with her two children. One child suffered burns and smoke inhalation, and other escaped unharmed.
The last time I caught up with her was when she and her father sold bonsais at the markets in Sydney. Now I watch from a distance via Facebook and see her kids all grown up. Her daughter is now a paramedic. My friend would have been so proud.
Maybe by going back in time to that night we could know exactly what happened and avert this horrible tragedy.
