Another Tobago fire leaves six homeless
Six people including a five-month-old baby are now homeless following a fire at Calder Hall Trace, Concordia, Tobago. The fire occurred around 1:30 pm on Thursday. One of the occupants of the home, Ann James, told the T&T Guardian she was outside the house when she heard a crackling noise in the living room area.
James said she and her husband went to investigate the noise but the area was already engulfed in flames and all family belongings were destroyed. Fire Officials revealed that preliminary investigations suggest that an electrical surge may have been the cause.
Losses have been estimated at $150,000. It was the second fire in Tobago for the week following Wednesday’s blaze at Charlotteville where four people, including a pensioner, were rendered homeless.
