Fire Accident at Taylors Road, Chennai












Nine huts were burnt down to ashes at Taylors Road. The people were all in panic when a sudden fire broke out from a particular street. The youth of Don Bosco Youth Center, Rinaldi, immediately came forward to put out the fire and to help the families.   The fire destroyed everything in their huts.   All the families now find shelter in DBYC-Rinaldi, thanks to the help of the Salesians.   The Salesians later helped each of the affected families by providing some of the basic necessities.


On 27th Wednesday July, at about 7.30 p.m., it was shocking to see flames erupting from an area near Taylors Road where many people live in small thatched huts. People were shouting and yelling all around. In no time nine huts were completely burnt down. The fire, though accidentally caused, created havoc for the residents. Fortunately there was no loss of life. Though the fire service is nearby, it did not arrive in time to help salvage any material goods. Fortunately the children were all in the night-study center at SIGA at the time and so they were all safe. The youth of Rinaldi Oratory generously came forward to help the people who were affected. That night, the affected people were allowed to stay in the youth center hall.

Thanks to the help offered by the Salesians, the people were given food and other materials. On the following day,the Provincial of Chennai, Fr.Stanislaus Swamikannu, further distributed food materials and other utensils to the affected people.
