Firebug claims two more houses
ALPHONSA DAVIS is pondering his next move after losing all his possessions and two houses at Dodds Land, Church Village, St Philip, yesterday.
The 53-year-old returning national, a driver of a tractor/trailer while in the United States, was about three miles away in St Patrick’s, Christ Church, when he got the news his house and another one nearby that was once owned by his deceased mother, and now occupied by his nephew Kenrick, were consumed by an early morning fire.
“I got a call about 3 a.m. that said my other house was on fire. When I got over here I saw the other house was also on fire,” he said, pointing to his home that was almost destroyed. His mother’s was completely levelled.
Neither house was insured.
Where does Alphonsa go from here?
“I am hoping that I get some assistance to get a house back together,” he said in despair. “I lost everything. I am a returning national so my documents are all gone. I have to start all over again.” (JS)
