Four fire tenders with 13 fire officers, led by two senior officers, are currently on the scene of a house fire at Kirton's, St Philip. 

Initial reports are that the house is occupied by a family of four. 

Divisional Officer Mervin Mayers told NationNews that the call came in at 10:27 a.m. and two appliances responded - one from Bridgetown and the other from St John.

However, challenges with water forced the team to summon two more appliances. The full extent of the damage is still not known. (DF)
