Mum who jumped from window to ESCAPE fire that killed both her children wins settlement

11

A mother who broke both her two legs after jumping out of a window to escape a horror blaze that killed her two young children has won a six-figure settlement from their TV’s manufacturer.

WHAT HAPPENED?

Jade Horton leapt from the second storey of the building as her children – Isaac, 3 and Sienna, 7 – died in their bedrooms in the 2020 fire in Eynesbury, Cambridgeshire.

The children’s inquest heard how the inferno was sparked by a ‘perfect storm of bad luck’ meant the home acted as a chimney and the fire spread rapidly up through its floors.

Little Isaac was killed in his room on the first floor, moments before his big sister died on the level above him. 

The fire was believed to have been caused by a television at the foot of the boy’s bed, which was identified by a screen frame discovered in the debris of the blaze.

COMPENSATION FEE

The unnamed manufacturer has since agreed to compensate Ms Horton, paying her a six-figure sum.

SHE COULDN’T SAVE HER CHILDREN

Speaking at her children’s inquest in 2022, the former prison officer described the awful moment she rushed to her daughter’s bedroom after hearing screams.

But she couldn’t get downstairs because the heat of the fire was so intense. 

Her partner’s arm set alight as he tried to struggle upstairs to find poor Sienna.

Both suffered burns, but their cause of death was given as smoke inhalation as both would have likely been unconscious beforehand, The Sun reported.
