House at Bisee destroyed by fire

A wooden house at Bisee was destroyed by fire at around noon today.

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.

It is reported that the building was occupied by a man who is believed to be in his thirties.

      Yes but someone must be around to hear and respond to the smoke alarm in a timely manner. By the time a smoke alarm goes off in a small wooden structure then there is fire and it could be too late.

      Fire hydrants are a good idea but you must prevail on WASCO to ensure that there is a constant supply of water in the hydrants.
