Fire bug strikes
TWO HOUSES, six derelict cars and several acres of bush and canes were destroyed by fire today.
In what was possibly one of the busiest days for firemen for the year, units were pressed into action combatting these blazes, while people in several districts complained of smoke and ash.
Both house fires were in St Philip – one in Heddings, the other at Mangrove – while the vehicles were damaged as a result of a bush fire at Cox Road, Christ Church.
There were also bush fires in Chancery Lane and Bannantyne, Christ Church. (LK)
