An abandoned structure was completely destroyed by fire this morning at Beanfield, Vieux Fort, the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS), has reported.
The Vieux Fort Fire Service told the Times that an alarm was raised shortly after 8:00 AM this morning.
The Fire Service has also reported that on Friday a family of three, a mother and three children, was left homeless when a plywood house at Monkey Hill, Dennery, went up in flames.
The building measured 16 feet by 20 feet and was covered with galvanized sheets.
The fire occurred at about 8:00 p.m.
The owner of the house, Noelissa Biscette, told the Times that no one was at home at the time of the blaze and that she suspects arson.
She and her children are currently accommodated at her Mother’s home.
