Thirty-five-year-old Victoria Diamond and her mother lost a job and house within one year of COVID-19 hitting the world.
The Pakistani family owned a two-bedroom apartment that caught fire last January, after a short-circuit unexpectedly sparked the room’s AC.
“My pet dog was the one who alerted my mother about the fire, and I lost one of my two cats duo to the smoke that filled up the place,” Victoria said.
The nervous mother called the neighbours to ask for help, who in their turn informed police and civil teams.
