Police have taken one man into custody after a fire at Barker’s Road, Haggatt Hall, St Michael, earlier Wednesday.

Seven people have been displaced as a result of the blaze which destroyed one structure. Two other structures, including a car, were slightly damaged.

The Barbados Fire Service received report of the fire around 5:38 p.m., says divisional officer Marlon Small.

They responded with a 15 member team and three appliances from Worthing, Christ Church; Bridgetown, St Michael and Arch Hall, St Thomas.

Meanwhile station officer Roger Bourne urged Barbadians to be cautious with practices around the home. He said someone was trying to use smoke to rid the area of mosquitoes and it escalated, but pointed out there were agencies available to help with these situations.

It is the fourth house fire and second car fire for 2024. (SAT)
