Five families homeless following massive fire in Villa


Several families are homeless after a fire broke out on Lower Saint George’s Street, Villa last evening.

The origin of the blaze that destroyed several homes, and threatened others, is now the subject of an investigation.

Pointe Xpress learned that the All Saints Fire Department responded to the fire.

Supposedly, the tenders at the St. John’s Fire Station are out of order, however, this has not been confirmed.

It took some time before firefighters got the rapidly spreading blaze under control.

Their task was more challenging last evening as they were forced to contend with high winds that fanned the flames. There were no reports of injuries.

  1. Did this really have to happen?
    Why was there no water ?
    Why did the police show up in riot gear?
    Why did the Prime Minister give the finger?
    Lives have been destroyed because of incompetence?
    What is more troubling is that it happened in the constituency of the TOP DAWG.
    TOP DAWG, please get your act together.
    What happened last night could have been avoided.

  2. Lower St.George’s Street is not Villa Area.If there is no water in the homes in that area.There would be no water in the Fire Hydrants.Where I am living the City Firemen would come and test the hydrants inside the Sub-Division on a regular basis.They need to do the same in Antigua.

  3. G-Ass-ton don’t care about his constituents. Only for their votes. Robbing the Hood good with people being able to take only one shower a day.

    Keep voting these creative self enrichment schemers in. They only concerned about their bank accounts NOT their constituents or the welfare of Antigua.
