A mother spoke on Tuesday about the horror of losing her three daughters to a house fire in Hillcrest Heights, Maryland, the previous day.
Jayla Brown, Nyjae Meade and Najahari Meade were killed in the overnight blaze in their home on Iverson Street. They were 9, 6 and 1.
The sisters’ mother, Janise Creek, said in an interview that she felt numb.
“I never thought in a million years that I would have to live this tragedy for the rest of my life,” she said.
Bedtime on Sunday was normal, Creek said.
“If you would have told me that that would have been the last time, me kissing my babies and putting them to bed and saying good night, that that would have been my last time seeing them,” she said, trailing off.
“I don’t wish this on nobody. It’s not even a pain. I don’t know what to call it. It’s not real. This heartache is not real,” she continued.
