QUICK RESPONSE by members of the Barbados Fire Service contained a blaze to one home along Bank Hall Main Road, St Michael, at the corner of Advent Avenue last night.

The main road was made impassable as three fire tenders responded with crew and took charge under the gaze of many onlookers and the occupants, brothers Gregory and Andrew Fenty, who live in what can be described as a traditional Barbadian bungalow.

Gregory, who was not at home when the fire broke out, said he got a call about 7:30 p.m. that the property was on fire. However, he was not allowed in to inspect the severity of the damage since the firemen were busy ensuring that the flames were smothered. (JS)
