12 affected as fire destroys San Fernando house

Twelve people are now homeless after a fire destroyed four homes along the Old Train Line, King’s Wharf, San Fernando.

The fire was believed to have started at the home of Alexander Gibbs, where he stored rice, flour, oil, sugar and toilet paper for Venezuelan fishermen to take back to the country. 

Single mother Afesha Noel and her family were also affected.

San Fernando West MP Faris Al-Rawi said constituency representatives have already met with the residents and everything is being done to bring relief.
