The Fire Department and the Police are conducting investigations into a house fire that occurred at Bottom Village, All Saints.

Officers from the All Saints Fire Station were called to the scene at about 4:10 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7, and met a small blaze in an incomplete upstairs section of the two-story concrete structure.

They moved quickly and extinguished the fire before it could spread to other parts of the house. However, a bed, 25 lighting-fixture covers, and several air-conditioning hoses were destroyed.

The building is reportedly owned by Egbert Mason and the ground floor is occupied by his daughter, Tanisha Mason.

As investigations into the cause of the fire continue, reports are that Tanisha’s son told her that two little boys had been seen running from the upper level of the structure moments before the fire started.
