Two made homeless by fire

Two men are now homeless following a house fire at  Fosters Gap, Jackson, St Michael.

The three-bedroom timber and wall rented structure was destroyed following a blaze in which the occupants lost all of their possessions.

Gordan August, 45, and Shelton Johnson, 40, were occupying the house at the time of the fire around 2:23 p.m.

Two fire tenders and eight officers under the command of Station Officer Clarence Hinds responded to the call.

    Accidents will happen because we do not always exercise care and I offer my sympathy to those made homeless.
    It I a burning shame that things have gotten so bad in our beloved island that people are so suspicious of others that foul play is, apparently, immediately suspected.
