A house at La Toc went up in flames Wednesday morning.

The Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) reports that someone called the Castries Fire station about the fire at approximately 7:20am.

“The fire department responded with three units,” SLFS spokesman, Damian Jn Baptiste disclosed.

He said the responders found that the house was in a completely remote area.

As a result, Jn Baptiste explained that responders could not reach it with the fire appliances to carry out fire suppression.

He  said while the  fire destroyed the plywood structure, a bucket brigade prevented the flames from engulfing a  nearby house.

According to the SLFS, the owner of the house that was destroyed was away at the time of the fire.
