Community support after mother and daughter killed in fire


A community event is being held this evening (19 October) to reassure residents after a mother and daughter were killed in a flat fire in Stoke-on-Trent.

Six-year-old Tafaoul Fadoul and her mother 36-year-old Zainab Adam, died in the blaze that broke out in a nearby flat on Sunday (1 October) in Ringland Close, Northwood.

Zainab's six-month-old daughter Tamunni Fadoul remains in a critical condition in hospital.

The event will be held at Elim Pentecostal Church from 6pm to 8pm.

Organisers say it is an informal drop-in for residents, where they can find out information and support available to them and meet officers from Staffordshire Police, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service and the city council.

A police investigation into the fire is ongoing.
