The New Year greeted a Christ Church woman with most unsettling news. She would be called to be told her home was ablaze early yesterday morning.
The uninsured two-bedroom wooden abode of Charlene King of Parish Land, Christ Church, went up in fire just after 3 a.m., taking with it all of King’s possessions.
When a Barbados TODAY team visited the site around noon, King said she was still coming to grips with the loss, and asked that she be revisited.
The New Year Day fire also caused minor damage to a nearby house, which is occupied by another of King’s family members. (AH)
