Several people lost their homes after fire broke out at Gunsite No. 1, Brittons Hill, St Michael, this morning.

A chattel house was razed to the ground and a wood and wall structure suffered extensive damage. 

A third home was also said to be burning. 

A resident told Nation Online a child was rescued from the wooden structure and an elderly man in the second home made his way to the patio and was carried to safety by a young man from the neighbourhood.

He was later seen sitting outside without a shirt and a young man took off his shirt and gave him.

Residents and the curious gathered at the scene.

When a Nation arrived, the house was still burning and some were on cell phones calling the Barbados Fire Service.

Two tenders arrived soon after and a third quickly followed, but the wooden structure was almost gone by then. (SAT)
