THE Department of Schools made a donation of school supplies yesterday to five siblings whose house burned down in Sg Teraban last month.

Assistant Director and Head of the Administrative Section of the Department of Schools Hj Mohd Rajap handed over the supplies, including stationery and school attire, to the five children at Sg Teraban Primary School.

The children's mother Siti Mariam Mohammad was also present for the occasion. Siti Mariam, in a previous interview said her children continued to study at Sg Teraban Primary school as the family were still living in Sg Teraban having moved into their in-laws house.

According to the Fire and Rescue Department, the fire which destroyed most of the house on the evening of August 14 originated from an overheated socket plug, located in a small garage a few metres in front of the house. The fire is estimated to have cost $90,000 in damages.
