A house was destroyed by fire on Friday evening in Punta Gorda Town. At around 6:30pm, the town’s fire fighters were called out to West Street where they came across a thirty by thirty feet structure engulfed in flames. Fire fighters managed to control the blaze and eventually put the fire out. Fortunately, they also managed to prevent the fire from destroying nearby structures. The cost of the damage has not been ascertained. The house belonged to Marion Norales.
