IT IS SHAPING UP to be a night of tragedy.

Unconfirmed reports indicate an elderly man may have perished in a house fire at Greenfield, St Michael, tonight, while a woman has reportedly fallen into a well at Brittons Hill, St Michael.

No more details are available at this time, but one house was completely destroyed, another was extensively damaged and a third received slight damage.

Three fire tenders under the command of acting Station Officer Denton Foster responded to the blaze.
