All lost in fire
AN EARLY AFTERNOON FIRE yesterday destroyed a small two-bedroom timber house off Long Gap, St Michael.
Firefighters said they found the house “fully engulfed” by flames which were “spreading to adjacent homes” shortly after 1 p.m. They were unable to save the contents.
No one was injured by the blaze, which also damaged the rear section of an occupied wooden house and one side of an unoccupied concrete one.
A representative of owner Ernesta Stuart of Long Gap said the razed house, which was not insured, had not been rented to anyone but was occupied by one or a few people.
The representative, who declined to be identified, said the plan had been to renovate the house shortly “and get it rented out”.
Popular DJ Volcano (Antonio Bullen) said he had been using the house. (TY)
