The number of children who have been killed in fires this year has caused concern in many sectors of society.
So far this year, six children between the ages of nine-months and 10 years have died as a result of house fires. In all the three separate incidents, the children were reportedly left home alone.
Director of Child Services Lorraine Duvalier pointed out yesterday that parents who are found guilty of negligence in the court can face imprisonment of up to 10 years or fines of up to $5,000, according to the Child Protection Act.
While not suggesting that any of the parents of the children who have been killed in fires this year were negligent, Duvalier reminded parents of the importance of ensuring that children are supervised by an adult at all times.
The latest tragedy came on Saturday night when a nine-month-old female was burned beyond recognition in a fire that destroyed a portion of an apartment complex.
The baby was reportedly left at home with her nine-year-old sister and five-year-old brother.
Police said the fire, which occurred at a duplex apartment at Domingo Heights, off East Street south, is still under investigation.
Three months ago, a three-year-old girl died in a fire at a small wooden structure in a Haitian village, off Golden Isles Road. That fire was reportedly started by an unattended candle.
In May, three children died in a fire that ravaged a large part of an apartment building on Sandilands Village Road. Another sibling died after spending a month in hospital.
The remaining children were initially hospitalized and then released.
Director of Fire Services Superintendent Jeffrey Deleveaux said the investigations are closed in all but one the those cases.
He said police do not intend to charge anyone in connection with the deaths of the first five children.
Duvalier said many parents do not think about the possible repercussions of leaving children unattended.
"Just think of the worst possible scenario that can happen," she said.
"Children are just that, they are children. Parents who leave that type of responsibility on children are setting themselves up for some consequences that can be tragic."
Asked about the age that is considered acceptable to leave a child at home, Duvalier said 14.
".And that is only when children come home from school and of course when parents come home they take over. We don't advocate children staying by themselves overnight," she clarified.
"We say 14 and even so it has to be a responsible 14-year-old," she said, adding that leaving a 14-year-old in charge of other young children is unacceptable.
Duvalier said anytime a child dies in a fire, her department gets involved. However, she declined to comment on any specific case.
