Share post:

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding a house fire at Rouens Road, St Michael which reportedly started around 4 a.m. this morning and affected three houses.

The blaze began at an unoccupied building with no furniture or fittings owned by Anthony Aldophus Browne, 57. Fire damage extended to an adjacent house also owned and occupied by Browne, which suffered fire damage to three windows and guttering. Browne was reportedly asleep when he was awoken by a loud noise. He then discovered that his unoccupied property next door was on fire. The building, though unoccupied at the time, is reported to be insured.

A neighbour’s house was also damaged, this one owned by Ometta Browne, 58 years. Her home suffered fire damage to its rear door and a window.

Two fire tenders with eight personnel responded and extinguished the blaze.

Investigations are continuing. (PR)
