A Ravine Poisson fire has left two persons homeless, after their wooden dwelling house was completely destroyed.

According to information obtained by the Times, the Saint Lucia Fire Service responded with a fire truck and an ambulance after an alarm was raised shortly before 1 pm today.

However the one bedroom building, measuring 12 x 8 feet, was already engulfed, it is reported.

Last night two dwelling houses at Barre de Chaussee were destroyed by fire.

The occupants were not at home at the time of the blaze.

Neighbours said they suspected arson, as a report had been made to the police earlier that someone had threatened to set fire to one of the houses.
