A house at Bocage, Castries, was destroyed by fire today.
Sub Officer Fernando James of the Saint Lucia Fire Service said that an alarm was raised at around 2pm.
“On arrival with our ambulance and fire suppression units we found one wooden structure fully engulfed,” James explained.
He said firefighters were able to extinguish the fire without any problems.
Neighbours reported that a man and his girlfriend lived in the house which is located behind the Bocage Secondary school.
But they were not at home at the time of the fire.
