Maghull house fire victims named as Keli and Joe Morgan

  • 1-19-2016

A primary school held a special assembly in memory of a member of staff who was killed in a house fire over the weekend.

School dinner lady Keli Morgan and husband Joe Morgan, both in their 40s, were killed in the blaze at Bridge Farm Drive, at 11:00 GMT on Saturday.

They were taken to University Hospital Aintree, but both were pronounced dead.

An unattended chip pan caused the fire. A smoke alarm "did not appear to have a battery", the fire service said.

The investigation is continuing but the interim report also found a carbon monoxide detector was installed on the ground floor but the battery was "incorrectly inserted".

St Andrew's Church of England Primary School in Maghull held a special assembly on Monday.

A Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "Our initial investigation indicates that there were smoke alarms at the house, however they were not functioning.

"We are still awaiting the full report on the cause of the fire."
