Granddad Jason Hoath has shared his heartache on social media where he said his “amazing, smart and beautiful” grandsons- Kyson and Bryson, four, and Leyton and Logan, three – will “always be in our hearts” after they died in a house fire in south London last night
The heartbroken granddad of two sets of twins who tragically died in a house fire last night has paid tribute to his “smart, amazing and beautiful” grandsons.
Jason Hoath shared his grief on social media today after the boys died in a horrific blaze that tore through a home in Sutton, South London at roughly 7pm on Thursday.
Kyson and Bryson, four, and Leyton and Logan, three, will “always be in our hearts”, Jason said.
After the fire, Met Police said a 27-year-old woman was taken into custody on suspicion of child neglect.
Paired with the tribute, Jason shared a picture of the four boys.
He wrote: “I am devastated to say that the horrendous house fire that took place in Sutton last night leading to four children loosing [sic] their lives were my amazing, smart and beautiful grandsons.
“Kyson and Bryson, aged four, and Leyton and Logan, aged three, were taken too soon they will always be in our hearts and thoughts.
“Boys, I love you forever. Grandad xxx”
The youngsters were described as “sweet-natured and happy boys” when their names were revealed earlier today.
Last night horrified residents were heard letting out screams of terror as the fire broke out.
Neighbours called 999 immediately and firefighters rushed to the property and performed CPR before paramedics arrived a short time after.
Despite the best efforts of the emergency response, the lads were tragically pronounced dead at hospital.
People were seen laying flowers at the scene today. One bouquet – a tribute from the children’s grandfather – reads: “To Kyson Bryson Leyton + Logan. Sleep well. Love Grandad”.
Horrifying footage filmed on Thursday night shows an ‘intense fire’ raging inside the property, with flames coming out of a window.
The walls of the building were covered in black smoke stains and the windows were burnt out in pictures taken on Friday morning.
A stall holder in Sutton, who said the children and their mum were regular customers, told The Mirror: “The kids were lovely, so well mannered.
“They [the mum and kids] were always up and down the market.
“It was always the kids I ended up talking to. I told her [the mum] the fact that she has managed to raise two sets of twins alone is a miracle.”
Police confirmed earlier today they have a 27-year-old woman in custody arrested on suspicion of child neglect.
