Thousands of dollars in damages in Four Roads Fire

An eighty-five year old woman of Four Roads, St. George’s has been left homeless as her house was razed by fire last Sunday.

Other families have also been affected as the spreading fire also destroyed a neighboring house and damaged others.

The elderly lady, Ms. Antoine lived alone at the time that her house was completely destroyed by the blaze.

On visiting the scene of the disaster on Monday Informer was reliably informed that Ms. Antoine was at home at the time of the incident.

Sources said the fire started at about 12:30 Sunday morning and that the senior citizen was rescued by the boys on the block who braved the fire and brought Ms. Antoine to safety to a nearby house. The source continued, calls were made immediately to the fire station informing them of the fire but by the time they arrived, the fire had aggressively engulfed almost the entire building.

An eyewitness told the Grenada Informer that if the fire truck had responded more promptly to the call maybe some areas of the house and some of its contents could have been saved. The fire truck also ran out of water during the operation.

Ms. Sharon Francois a neighbor whose house was affected by the fire described the experience as one of the more frightening ones in her life. She explained, she feared for her 26year- old- son who is physically disabled, in case the fire got the better of her home, but he was brought to safety with the help of his brother; however she was thankful Ms. Antoine was also brought to safety.
