St Michael homes destroyed by fire
FOUR HOMES were destroyed and two others damaged by fire today.
Residents of Wilkinson Road and President Kennedy Drive came to the assistance of neighbours whose homes were affected. A stove was saved from one of the homes.
NATION ONLINE has been informed that one resident had been cooking for their dog when the fire got out of control.
Rikky Cummins, Superintendent of Cemeteries, moved swiftly to secure the cemetery’s log books after smoke began to engulf the area which is close to the Westbury Cemetery.
Some of the mahogany trees in the area have also been affected. As the branches burn, they have been breaking off and falling into the cemetery, causing spot fires. (SP)
