Fire leaves St James man homeless

A St James man is homeless following a fire which destroyed his wooden house this morning.

An eyewitness told Barbados TODAY that the fire broke out at the house, located at Carlton, in the wee hours of the morning.

It was not immediately clear how the fire started and the eyewitness did not know the name of the owner.

The blaze was put out by a unit from the Barbados Fire Service. (AGB)

    Now where are the Religious Faithful extremists and and the Religious Holy Rollers , aren’t they all going to come out in bunch and try to get their 15 mins of fame by asking the Almighty God and Jehovah to help this poor homeless person ?

    Also is Dr. Paula Estwick going to give us her heart warming rendition of George Beverly Shea’s ” How great thou art ‘ ? and is Heather Straker going to call on her ” buddies ” to come out ” en masse ” and help this poor homeless one ?

    At the time of this posting I don’t know the race of this homeless person BUT in a few more hours from now by following up on this on the comments of this report I’ll know his race .

    Okay ! I’ll begin by asking the Almighty father to help this homeless man and I’ll start the rendition of ” How great thou art ” hoping that all of the hypocritical Holy Rollers and Dr. Estwick and Heather Straker will join me in the chorus.

    Dear God , How great thou art . . .. how great thou art.

    Jennifer ! if you are as smart as you think you are by now you should have been able to realize that ” Ossie ” is a PROFESSIONAL WRITER / JOURNALIST . . . and not just a local timid bajan journalist ( who is scared to report the facts ) BUT a Noth American based INTERNATIONAL JOURNALIST whose work is viewed by ” millions on a daily basis . . . not just 280.000 people.

    Ossie presents the ” facts ” and lets the readers decide Jennifer , the truth is often a sad commodity Jen and everyone is entitled to their own opinion . . . . if I am ” acidic ” like you say ( for expressing my own opinion ) ,then that’s your own stupid opinion.
