FIREMEN ARE CURRENTLY on the scene of a blaze at Crumpton Street, Bridgetown.

A NATION team is reporting that firemen are now focussing their attention on a building that houses W. Roach Commercial Business Machines and Carmichael Welding Shop which is engulfed in flames.

One unoccupied house has been all but destroyed. There is no threat to the historic Harrison College.

Two tenders from the nearby Barbados Fire Service headquarters responded to the blaze soon after the report came in at 10:45 a.m. and currently Crumpton Street is closed to traffic from its junction with Roebuck Street.

Meanwhile, the fire has diverted the attention of scores of persons who were in Queen’s Park for the annual Agrofest Exhibition. (RRM)

Some of the patrons at the Agrofest Exhibition watched the fire from the safety of Queen’s Park.
