Wooden House Destroyed by Fire

WATCH THE VIDEO: A wooden dwelling house at Pavee was destroyed by fire yesterday, September 1.

The occupant of the building which was destroyed was not at home at the time of the fire.

The Saint Lucia Fire Service reported receiving a distress call at 2:50 pm.

Just yesterday firemen were summoned to the scene of a fire at Marchand, where another dwelling house was completely destroyed.

At the time the Responders complained that indiscriminately parked vehicles made it a challenge to manoeuvre the fire truck which was dispatched to the area.

They also told the Times that live electrical wires and the way the property had been fenced up with galvanized sheets placed lengthwise, created problems for them in fighting the fire.
