Fire at Chickmont farm

chickmont fireFirefighters are at this hour battling a blaze at a Chickmont farm on Ridge Road, Christ Church.

The fire at ZRS Farms started just after 4 pm.

General Manager and Director Edward Albecker told Barbados TODAY a short while ago that 7,000 two-week-old turkeys were lost in the fire.

The company is estimating at least $700,000 in damages – the cost of the pen in which the birds were housed.
