A Hadfield Street, Georgetown man is now left without a roof over his head after a fire completely ravaged his home just before midnight on Saturday.House owner Rudy Morgan said he was awakened by a crackling sound and intense heat on his body, and upon checking, saw that his Lot 47 Hadfield Street Lodge home was on fire.The man, who makes ornaments along Main Street Georgetown, was the lone occupant of the one-flat wooden house. He recalled that, before going to bed, he had lit a mosquito coil, which he surmised might have been the cause of the fire.“I was sleeping, I was on my bed…to tell you the truth, I got lil water under my house, so the mosquitoes were a lot. So I light two coils, and then I went to bed, went under my netting and went to sleep. When I sleeping, I feel the heat on my skin, so I jump up,” Morgan relayed.Rudy MorganThe man recounted that he quickly hopped out of bed and made attempts to douse the flames before the fire spread further, but this proved futile.“I run and I used some bottled water that I had to try and out the fire, but before I know it, the fire ran through half of my house,” he explained.Fearing for his safety, Morgan said, he exited the house and began calling on neighbours to alert them.The Fire Service was also called to the scene; however, by the time they arrived, the entire house was already burnt to the ground.The ornament-maker estimates his losses to be in excess of $1 million. He told this publication that all his craft items have been destroyed in the fire.“I had all of my ornaments that I does sell in here and outside, and everything burned. I lost my livelihood, because all the materials that I does use and so gone,” Morgan cried.Now homeless, the man is calling on the public to lend him assistance in rebuilding. He revealed that all the cash he had in his home has been lost in the fire.
Gloves Bellator MMA will be holding an eight-man heavyweight Grand Prix, in which the winner will be crowned as the new division champion. This tournament will kick-off in January of the coming year and will feature some of the biggest names of the past and present. This week, the first round of the tournament was announced, and one of the fights that were made is between former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir, and a man who has been touted as the greatest of all-time, Fedor Emelianenko. In a recent interview with MMAjunkie Radio, Mir spoke about the opportunity that has been presented to him, and how he looks at a fight of such magnitude. “It’s like being a big game hunter,” Mir said of his fight, which has been tentatively scheduled for April. “I don’t want to go out there and shoot a little quail. You want to take out the biggest and the baddest.”Mir last saw action in March 2016 when he lost to Mark Hunt via first-round knockout. He was later suspended for two years by USADA for failing a drug test. After such a long layoff, the 38-year-old fighter is simply ecstatic to be back in action. “It’s nice to be a fighter again,” Mir said. “A little bit of limbo was the last year-and-a-half, not having a fight scheduled and not being able to participate. I finally get to fight again. It’s something that, when you don’t get to do what you love, it makes it even worse.”The tournament will be kicked-off by a fight between former UFC standouts Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Chael Sonnen. It is set to take place at Bellator 192 on January 20th in Inglewood, California.
