Fire of unknown origin destroyed two houses at Ceres Land, Grazettes, St Michael on Saturday.
The fire which occurred about noon destroyed a wooden house owned and occupied by David Hinds, 57; and a wood and wall house owned by Sophia Jaimangal, 52, and Nicole Callender, 35.
The fire also damaged the trimmings to the roof and to the water heater of a wall house owned by Gloria Nowell.
Jaimangal said she was awakened by the smell of smoke and went to her bathroom window to investigate but was thrown back by the heat coming from Hinds’ house.
Jaimangal was unable to save her property but managed to remove some articles of clothing.
Divisional officer Gittens, Station Officers Vaughn and Hinds along with 12 officers, three fire tenders and a water tanker responded and extinguished the fire.
