Mower burns on Ronald Mapp Highway


Share post:

A WORKER WITH the Adopt-A-KM project escaped injury after a mower he was operating caught afire this morning.

The operator, who did not give his name, said he heard a sound – “poof” – and then realised the machine was on fire. He jumped off, called the supervisor and the Barbados Fire Service.

The workers were cleaning the section of the Ronald Mapp Highway near Lancaster, St James.

A police patrol unit saw the fire and stopped to investigate.

The Adopt-A-Km (kilometre) Community Highway Project is a private sector venture.

The concept is to beautify and maintain the landscape along the highway by allowing individuals and corporations to adopt a kilometre and have their names and logos featured on a four-foot sign that will be decorated with foliage. (RL)
