Four lose all in house fire

A family of four is lamenting the loss of their home and all their possessions to fire. On Sunday night, Ramnarmace Ramassar watched as his home in Fairy Valley, Christ Church, burned to the ground. A Guyanese national by birth, he has spent the last 16 years in Barbados, and the last four of those building his home. He lived with his wife Phulmatie Mitra and two children, Ritesh Ramassar and Pooram Khailoo. He said the house was not insured. Two other houses were slightly damaged. Both candidates for the area, Dr Denis Lowe of the Democratic Labour Party and Wilfred Abrahams of the Barbados Labour Party, were on the scene offering assistance. (CA)
