An early morning fire at St Stephen’s, Black Rock, St Michael destroyed a three-bedroom timber home occupied by 31-year-old Michelle Marshall and her two children.
Seven fire officers and two water tenders from Probyn Street responded to the blaze, which also caused damage to four windows and a door at Ralph Darlington’s home.
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.
When a team from Barbados TODAY visited the scene today, police were still investigating the origin of the fire. (AGB)
