Neighbours reported hearing a noise and seeing smoke coming from the building at the back of Bisee, a short distance away from the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) Headquarters.
According to information obtained by the Times, the fire spread quickly.
The Saint Lucia Fire Service responded with two fire trucks after an alarm was raised, but could not save the building.
