Three families have been affected when their homes went up in flames yesterday afternoon.
Acting Station Officer and Public Relations Officer of the Dominica Fire and Ambulance Service Tony Jno Baptiste said his unit responded to a structural fire at Tarish Pit at about 5:10 p.m.
“I can confirm that three buildings, two of which were constructed of imported timber were completely destroyed while the third being a split level building constructed of concrete blocks was extensively damaged.”
Twelve persons consisting of five children of school age have been affected by the fire; no injuries have been reported.
“Investigation into the fire is ongoing,” Jno Baptiste said.
