‘Babes, We Have To Get Out Of The House!’

A victim of the devastating fire at Bishop’s Gap, Marchand, Castries, has recounted how she and her husband escaped with just the clothing on their backs.

Saturday’s devastating blaze destroyed three structures and left five people homeless, the Saint Lucia Fire Service said.

Romilia Fergoson, a vendor at the Castries Craft Market, recalled that she was in good spirits when she left work for home Saturday afternoon because she had made some ‘Euros’.

As a result, when she got home, she shared the good news with her husband before getting some rest.

But Fergoson, whom people refer to as ‘Sis Sis,’ told reporters that the smell of smoke woke her up, but she discovered nothing untoward upon investigating.

However, the Marchand resident said when she went back to bed, the smell of smoke grew stronger.

She said she went to her kitchen step this time and discovered that her neighbour’s house was on fire. She and her husband tried to pour water, to no avail as the fire spread.

“When I saw the smoke I started crying and I said ‘Babes, we have to get of the house. We must get out because that fire is in our bedroom already and was in my son room already,” Fergoson explained.

She said she and her husband, who has mobility issues due to poor blood circulation, eventually fled the building.

“I lost everything I had,” she declared. “I am homeless. I lost everything I worked hard for. Not even a dollar I have for me to survive, but I will get there because I know that God is good – the God that I serve is a good God.”

However, she praised Housing Minister Richard Frederick, who visited the community and offered her shelter at his own home.

“Hats off to him. He was with me. He begged me to come by him and spend some time but I said ‘Boss I cannot come by you because I will not be comfortable. He tell me ‘Come, my house have space I will get you groceries’ I say ‘No boss I will not be comfortable'”.

The Marchand fire victim said she is currently at her daughter’s residence where she is also not ‘too comfortable’ because she likes being at her own home to do whatever she wants.

And despite her loss, she praised God, asserting that she was in good spirits and declaring that with the help of her God, she would hopefully build another house that would be bigger and better.

  1. …….will all that said you are still That Yellow Johncrow and an Enemy of The People, an Enemy of The State. As previously stated, I don’t come here on this Pravda to be a Star or for the “likes”, I simply counteract your spewed daily rubbish as it pertains to the good governance of Supreme Leadership Party (Red and proud of it). I will absolutely concur we have nothing in common, except the same taste in women…….I am way too sophisticated for you.

  2. I see that SLT has sent you LH more than one reply to your comment,well you’ve got a bonus. Enjoy. Maybe they’ll publish the original. You can keep that one too.

  3. Oh LH did you have a good dayπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚I saw that you needed something to bring you out or wake you from your pee bed. Now why do you always resort to calling people names when you have nothing of substance to say? I gotta laugh πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You got to be nice sometimes bruh. Did mama not teach you any manners? You should know better than to think that your words can phase meπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

    Who’s the yellow John CrowπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ ah LH you should know better than that. Now I see that there is a pesky troll who is trying to ride this threadπŸ™„you should tell them about me. I ride alone and don’t care for the likes of wannabe weak trolls. Like RF said in the house, don’t come in this bruh/cat. This kitchen is too hot for pesky weak wannabe trolls. Now go scalp yourself. Choo.

    Now back to you LH. You are so blinded by your love for Chass that you can’t see pass your nose. I stand by what I said and won’t apologize for it. Also I’m not an enemy of the state,I’m an enemy of the Ship Wreckers called the SLP. You know what I’m the enemy of? I’M AN EMENY OF RACKETEERING IN THIS COUNTY. I’M AN EMENY OF BLUE COLOR CRIMES. I’M AN EMENY OF THE GLOBALIST WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US AS A I’M AN EMENY OF INJUSTICE. I’M AN EMENY OF THE VILE CREATURES THAT WALK THIS EARTH and I can go on so if that makes me an enemy of the STATE,then YES I AM. IF YOU’RE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY THEN YOU’RE MY ENEMY. The love I have for my people and country, entities like you can and will never comprehend. I may be color blind but I’m not color stupid. I support good governance allllll the way. I can not call evil good and good evil. That’s not my style. I don’t care what side of the fence you’re on as long as you’re country first then it’s all good. And btw calling me an enemy of the state is the only truth you’ve ever spoken. I think I should get you something πŸ€”how bout some DaisysπŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

    Now it’s said that whatever you sell can never be regained. I have mine,do you still have yours? Now stop behaving like a baby okay. I won’t stoop to your level by calling you names because many of us have grown accustom to you and your style. You’re like our Elmo doll πŸ˜‚ with purple hair.

    You know that you and I have nothing in common. I’m a patriot that will die for my country but not for a political party unlike you.

    Anyway let me go on my business tan…. yawnnnnning

  4. Hear O LORD, the desire of the afflicted ;give them encouragements and listen to their cry
    defending the fatherless and the oppressed,in order that man, who is of the earth,may terrify no more !
    May you rain on the wicked fiery coals and burning sulphar-a scorching wind that will be their lot !

  5. Thank you LORD !
    You has keep me safe as the apple of your eye
    and hide me in the shadow of your wings from the wicked who assails me, from the mortal enemies who surround me –
    You have keep me safe, O God, for in you i take refuge. I said to you O God,”You are my LORD ;apart from you i have no good thing .
    May your mercy come quickly to meet us for
    we are in despreate need.

    Arise,O LORD !Lift up your hand,O God.
    Do not forget the helpless
    Why does the wicked man revile GOD ?
    Why does he say to himself ,”He won’t call me to account”?
    But you, O God,do see trouble and grief ;
    you consider to take it in hand. The victims commits themselves to you ; for you are the father of the poor and fatherless.
    Break the arm of the wicked and evil man ;
    call him to account for his wickedness that would not be found out .

  7. @fulltime…. It’s all about playing the game. They need put on their red labar ti-shirts and not forgetting the mask to be recognized

  8. The fire victims from Mongiraud who lost everything they owned is a stone throw from your La Retret housing project. Why have you not come through for them?

  9. Not when the deeds are for man to judge…. So true your own woman left the house she knew for so long. Who would want to stay with you show off. Why didn’t you give her one of your apartments instead. It is better to give in secret than to let the world know what the right hand did.

  10. SHOW OFF. Your own woman eh even wanna stay at your home. U want the woman to come there. CHOOOPPPSSS TAN. Dat all u like, for the poor to beg and need u all. Gv them a lil cut bush contract and say is Stimulus and all u checking for the poor. Choops Tan.

  11. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚beggers are not choosers but this one real choosy yeah. Smh. You like to be at your own home πŸ™„ but at the moment you don’t have your a home anymore so be contented with the help coming your way. I guess being a labor supporter you expect a mansion on a hill πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

    Did he offer all 5 or just this one?

    RF next time rent her a house until y’all do what’s needed for her and the many fire victims in this country.

    One said generous πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚the devil is also generous dear.

    • Tuwa- Chu- mama-mosi yuh have too much zafe’ what is wrong if the woman wanting to be at her own home and in her own space ??? Yuh see the woman begging for anything yuh Yellow Johncrow ?? I tell yuh already yuh is the number one Enemy of This State and a blasted wretch on top of it. Yuh ever see Chastanet giving poor people anything ??

  12. My Dear I am sorry for your lost especially this time of year just before Christmas makes it even harder to deal with. BIG UP to RF and his generosity the same bad mind wicked hearts who bash poor people of this country simply because you are poor and you are from that side of town would not open their hearts much less to give you a dollar, but God has a plan for them. Politicians can only do so much if the people are not willing; you went and work your money, you never teeef and beg for it you don’t have a dollar but you have your pride and dignity and respect, can’t say the same for many who are better off than you right now. Never mind Boo Boo Highgrade will get the info from Ipa and organize you with a small ting.

  13. My heart goes out to the fire victims. Starting over is not easy. Hats off to Richard Frederick for offering his home to the fire victim. I don’t care what illicit activities people claim Richard is involved in but for him to offer this fire victim his home as shelter is admirable. Whatever Richard does in his private life is his business but he clearly has a caring heart and has rendered assistance to alot of people in unfortunate circumstances in St Lucia. Well done Richard!
