Two fires in St Philip last night


Share post:

THE starry skies of St Philip were taken over by an orange glow after fire struck twice destroying a storage facility and an old master’s lodge last night.
The first blaze at Dodd’s Government Industrial School around 7:30 p.m saw the destruction of the Master’s Lodge, while the second blaze about two hours later took out a bond which housed building material at Oldbury, to the south.
The Barbados Fire Service was also kept busy with a fire which destroyed two houses at Gill’s Road, St Michael resulting in five people being homeless yesterday. (JS)
