Six persons homeless after fire destroyed an apartment building

Six persons are homeless due to a fire which broke out in the Boca Del Rio area of San Pedro Town on Saturday morning. Love news spoke with Gladstone Bucknor, the Officer Commanding the San Pedro Fire Station, who said that the fire started in the living room.

Gladstone Bucknor – Officer Commanding San Pedro Fire Station- “The centering that destroyed had one exit, one entrance. So the occupiers of the ground floor had to make their escape through a window. “
Reporter: Was anyone hurt ?
Gladstone Bucknor – Officer Commanding San Pedro Fire Station : Yes we have a female that got hurt on the ground floor she attempted to out the fire but could not and then a male on the first floor he got a hurt, a cut on his foot helping them to escape the fire. One of the fire trucks is larger and it couldn’t go into every single area but it can go to strategic places that would be useful for us and the smaller one can maneuver into other smaller areas.”

The burnt house was recently built, replacing one that was destroyed in  August 2018 where seven buildings burnt to the ground and 96 people were displaced.
