The smouldering remains of the house shared by Jamal Mahon and Shane Collymore.

Memories and mementos of his late father were destroyed this afternoon when 18-year-old Jamal Mahon lost the home he shared with Shane Collymore, 24.

Three fire tenders, two water tenders and one tanker responded to the blaze in Park Road, Bush Hall, St. Michael that claimed their home, extensively damaged two more and singed another.

Mahon reflected that he had lost all the photographs and other memorabilia of his father that was dear to him, when the fire flattened his home.

Occupants of the other houses that were extensively damaged included Kelvin Clarke and Michael Hollingsworth, who was renting from owner Livingston Yarde. The two-storey wall home belonging to Zephir Sumrah suffered damage to a window and wooden trimming.

Nine officers, led by Leading Fire Officer Peter Brathwaite responded to the blaze, which Brathwaite reported took about an hour to extinguish, but he refused to speculate on the cause as investigations by both fire and police officer are ongoing.

He said they got the call about 12:14 p.m. (LB)
