The family of a 13-year-old boy who lost his life in an horrific house fire last month have held a candlelit vigil in his honour. Dozens packed into Stow Gardens in Geraldton on Saturday night to remember Nulla Mongoo — including his family. “It’s very special we’ve got everyone down here tonight, it’s well needed in the community,” said relative Nadine Ryan. Nulla Mongoo died in Perth Children’s Hospital on June 5, four days after he suffered burns to 90 per cent of his body when a fire broke out in his Mt Tarcoola home on Marinula Road. His older brother Matthew, 14, and a 12-year-old friend suffered critical burns and were airlifted to Perth. The Child and Adolescent Health Service revealed only this week that both boys were now in stable conditions and had been moved out of intensive care and into a ward. It’s understood the young boys will require follow-up treatment and that their rehabilitation could continue for years. Emergency services rushed to the Marinula Road home about 4.10pm on June 1, after triple zero calls reported children were trapped inside a burning house. Five ambulances attended the scene where the three teenagers were found with significant burns. Police said the fire had started after reports of a “large bang or explosion potentially in the rear garden” and it was believed an accelerant was involved. It took about an hour to bring the blaze under control as firefighters were forced to enter through the back of the property due to a partial roof collapse. The damage bill to the property — a State-owned house — is understood to be around the $300,000 mark. It’s understood arson squad officers are still investigating the house fire on behalf of the coroner.
