Two houses destroyed in fire

Two houses were destroyed by fire at Barre de Chaussee this evening, residents of the community have reported.

The fires occurred just before 8:00 pm.

Two persons are reported to be homeless as a result of the fire which consumed the adjoining wood and concrete dwelling houses, according to reports.

Neighbours have said that they suspect arson, claiming that a report had been made to the police just this week that a threat had been made to burn down one of the houses.

No one was in the two buildings when the fire occurred.
