The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - - - K.N.

It was a smoky scene yes­ter­day in Beause­jour, Gros Islet af­ter a fire broke out near the Gros Islet Methodist Church. The STAR ar­rived on the scene at 1:40 pm to a busi­ness and res­i­den­tial area with bil­lows of smoke loom­ing over­head.

A man who claimed to live across the road from the burnt build­ing said he walked out of his house and no­ticed the huge plumes of black smoke, so he came down to see what was go­ing on, al­though he could not pro­vide any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion. He and an­other res­i­dent ob­served that fire ser­vices had been present since about 10am that morn­ing.

An em­ployee at The Cell has con­firmed that The Cell Ware­house was amongst the burnt prop­er­ties. How­ever fur­ther de­tails on the cause and reach of the fire were still un­avail­able from the Gros Islet Fire Sta­tion up un­til press time.
