All lost in house fire
NOTHING?WAS saved when a fire engulfed a rented house at Grazettes Main Road, St Michael yesterday afternoon.
According to residents a young woman who occupied the residence was not at home and could not be reached for comment.
Neighbours said the victim moved into the house one week ago.
“I had just come inside when I saw the electricity flicker and my wife shouted ‘fire’ and when I looked outside the house was engulfed,” said an eyewitness who did not want to be identified.
Denton Foster, Acting Station Officer of the Barbados Fire Service, said they received the call around 5:38 pm.
Two fire tenders from the Probyn Street headquarters and eight fire officers under the command of Foster responded. (LK)
