Father dies 48 hours after fire that killed three year-old son

The father, who tried in vain to save his three-year-old son in a fire that gutted their home in St. James, on Friday, has died.

Hospital authorities confirmed that Adiola Alleyne died Sunday at the Port of Spain General Hospital from the burns he received while trying to rescue Aqualani Alleyne, whose charred remains were discovered in the debris after the early morning blaze was out.

Fire officials have not given any reason for the blaze, but media reports said an electrical fault may have caused the fire at the single storey building.
