Crowd­fun­der af­ter blaze de­stroys flat

Evening Times - - NEWS - BY CARLA JENK­INS

A CROWD­FUN­DER has been launched to raise money for the lawyer who lost ev­ery­thing in this week’s Lancefield Quay fire.

David Cur­rie, 31, was at the pan­tomime in Dum­bar­ton when he found that his flat was en­gulfed in flames.

He rushed to the scene to be told he could not gain ac­cess, and watched the fire across the wa­ter.

He said: “It was a very sad ex­pe­ri­ence, watch­ing it burn from the other side of the river.

“I’ve got no idea how the fire started, and no one seems to have any ideas.

“I’ve lost ev­ery­thing that I spent years build­ing up and mak­ing into a home.

“I know that it’s not about ma­te­rial stuff but it’s so dev­as­tat­ing.

“Ap­pre­ci­ate what you have while you have it as you never know what’s go­ing to hap­pen to­mor­row.”

A friend has now started a crowd­fun­der for David, hop­ing to help him restart af­ter the dev­as­tat­ing blow.

Po­lice Scot­land are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether there is a crim­i­nal el­e­ment to the fire which at its height was tack­led by 60 fire­fight­ers.
