On Saturday 8 April, a “fierce fire” left two people dead.
The fire started at 6am and destroyed Newgrange Care Home in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire.
Unfortunately, two elderly women died in the blaze. Ivy Spriggs, aged 91 and Daphne Holloway aged 88.
Hertfordshire County Council released a statement saying: “Firefighters were faced with an extremely fierce fire, well-established in the first floor and the roof of the building, which has since collapsed. Sadly, we can confirm that two people died in the fire and we would like to offer our sympathies to their families.”
The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
