Haʻakame housefire victim, 10, remembered as ʻgenerous young boy’

    A 10-year-old boy from Haʻakame died last night in a housefire while his two older brothers escaped the blaze shortly after 11pm, Wednesday 24.

    A cousin has confirmed  the victim was Mahe Fonohema and remembered him as a generous young boy.

    Sosefina Fonohema said on Facebook Mahe has a heart of gold and always wanted to share his food with her whenever she came to his house.

    Condolences are pouring in for the victim across social media with many expressing how they wished to share with them the grief of his mother, Sapulina Fonohema.

    Social media users have reported the fire last night on Facebook and said they tried in vain to rescue the boy from the house.

    They  eventually brought him out of the blazing but everything they did to save his life was too late.

    Some reports said the firefighters arrived but the house had already collapsed.
