A wooden house was destroyed by fire yesterday at Trois Piton, Castries.
The Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) reports that the fire occurred at about 5:28 PM in the wooden house measuring twelve feet by sixteen feet.
After an alarm was raised fire fighters responded with two fire trucks and an ambulance but the structure was already engulfed in flames, according to reports.
An official of the SLFS told the Times that the male individual who occupies the house was not at home at the time of the fire.
The cause of the blaze is currently under investigation.
