Dennery Fire Station Responds To Prison Fire


The Dennery Fire Station dispatched a fire truck and an ambulance to the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) Saturday morning after receiving a fire report at about 9:38 am.

The fire was in the BCF’s maximum unit where piece of sponge had been set alight but was quickly extinguished.

The fire did not cause any major damage, and no one sustained any injuries.

After the incident, BCF officers searched the cells, during which they found contraband items, including three mobile telephones and accessories.

An investigation into Saturday’s fire is underway.

  1. I am urging the heads at the prison to search the cells on a more frequent basis.

  2. Transparency, Transparency, Transparency. Who is the one bringing the contraband to the prisons? Is it corrupt officers? By the way I recalled 2 male prisoners broke into a female cell and rape her. What become of the officer who was on duty at the time? We are not hearing anything whatsoever. Mr. GARDE have a press conference and clear the air. What is the outcome of the deputies lost firearm. Public service answer.

  3. The young people prefer to go to prison and get their 3 meals a day, free health care than to go and work in the private and public sector for 3 to 5 EC dollars an hour
