A Mother’s Day celebration in Derniere Riviere, Dennery took a sad turn when fire erupted in the upstairs of a dwelling house, while a family celebrated downstairs.
It capped off a hectic weekend for emergency officials, who responded to 11 fire calls, between May 11th and May 14th.
Station officer at the Fire Service headquarters Germaine Williams says on Sunday, May 13 officers from the Dennery Fire Station responded to frantic calls for assistance from residents of Derniere Riviere.
He says by the time they arrived at the home sometime after 2:00 pm, the structure was engulfed in flames.
The Mother’s Day blaze was one of 11 fires over the weekend.
There were no injuries. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
