The cost of the fire

Dear Editor,

It’s not only the firefighter's lives that were at risk. 

The people in the workplaces near the Matautu Wharf were at risk. All businesses and properties in Apia were threatened. People were scared.

And let’s not forget that man who has died.

He was a hardworking man and he was attending work as everyone else would to provide four his beautiful family.

I am glad there is a full investigation on how this could have been prevented.

While everyone is safe, my family has lost a son, a brother, a nephew, a friend, a cousin, a grandson, a husband and a Dad. 

It took 1 soul 4 the government officials to make a move asking NZ and Australia for assistance into why this has happened. It is so sad.
