Fire damages City house


Share post:

A MIDDLE-AGED couple – Turushottam Tiwari, 66, and his wife Deodre, 62 – were left in a state of shock after a fire extensively damaged their home at King’s Street, The City, on Sunday night.
The fire, which was extinguished by three tenders from the Bridgetown division of the Barbados Fire Service, started around 10 p.m. in an abandoned house near the entrance of the Wesley Hall Primary School.
The blaze spread to both the Tiwaris’ home and a shop next door, damaging the roofs and the sides of both buildings.  
Community-spirited individuals saved a number of items from the Tiwaris’ home.
Tiwari indicated that he did not own the house. He and his wife were too distraught to speak to the Press.
A large number of East Asians converged on the scene in the densely populated area. (KB)
