Elderly Man Perishes in Fire


Investigations are ongoing into a house fire at Seaview Farm near the Jehovah Witness Church that is believed to have claimed the life of 74yr old Hilton Floyde.

All Saints Fire Tenders responded to the call approximately 11:31am on Wednesday and met the 21×45 wooden structure engulfed in flames.

The property was owned by Claire Floyde and occupied by five people to include Mr Floyde, who was a wheelchair bound amputee.

The property was completely destroyed by the blaze. Fire fighters were able to extinguish the blaze, averting any damage to nearby properties. A medical doctor arrived on the scene and pronounced him dead approximately 2:33pm.

No one else was injured coming out of the incident.

  1. SMH!! Extending condolences to the family of the deceased elderly wheel chair- bound fire victim is the only decent, appropriate and human response to the tragic news on which you were the first to comment. Shame on you! To the Floyde family, I feel your loss and trust that you would turn to God for strength and sustenance. R.I.P. Grandpa.
