Darlington, who lives next door to Marshall, told Barbados TODAY he looked through his window around 4 a.m. to discover that the house burning.

“After I see the house was burning I holler for murder and help .

“I saw a fellow coming down . . . and I told him my wife cannot walk and I asked him for some help.”

Luckily for Darlington, the fire did not really spread but it cracked his windows.
