David Husbands is counting over $200 000 in losses after a fire gutted his home and trucking business at 7th Avenue, Harts Gap, Christ Church, around midday yesterday. An Akita and a parrot perished in the inferno that also claimed a crane and a couple of cars. David, the eldest brother of champion jockey Patrick Husbands, owned and managed Husbands Transport for three decades. Here, Barbados Defence Force personnel and a team from the Barbados Fire Service battling the blaze.
