Fire Destroys Entrepot Residence


A fire on Thursday afternoon destroyed a dwelling house at Entrepot, Castries.

The Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) said at least four people lived in the building of concrete and wood.

But no one was at home at the time of the blaze.

Emergency personnel said they received a call for help at about 2:53 pm and responded with a fire truck and an ambulance.

There are no further details at present.

  1. For um teenth time “the building goes up in smoke or is burnt completely” The Fire Service can never reach anywhere on time because of the number of Speed Bumps they have to stop then pass over on EVERY single road in Lucia.

  2. Are you really saying speed bumps are restricting fire TRUCKS!

    I could understand the tricky terrain, getting the hoses up or down narrow paths, poor road network between the housing.

    Or not enough if, any fire hydrants nearby limiting to the fire trucks tank.

    But speed bumps, nah, that one don’t make sense. If you said the Ambulance is restricted by too many speed bumps that would start to make some sense.
