It has been a busy day so far for local fire officers who have already responded to two early morning fires.

Around 5:34 a.m. this morning, firemen responded to a house fire at Briar Hall, Christ Church.

Two tenders with eight officers – one from Worthing, the other from Bridgetown, responded to the call, under the command of acting Station Officer Clarence Hinds.

And around 6.23 a.m., firemen received reports of smoke coming from the roof of the Consolidated Finance building at Collymore Rock, St. Michael.

Three tenders with ten officers led by acting Station officer Hinds responded to that call, under the command of Divisional Officer Gittens.

On forcibly entering the building, they were able to locate the source and extinguish the fire. (RG)
