Fifth building destroyed by fire this week

on .

More fire incidents have been reported this week. A house at St. Louis was completely destroyed during the night of Wednesday 2 August 2017. This is the fifth case of severe fire incidents reported this week.

“We received a call at 11.57 p.m last night reporting that a house at St. Louis, Stevenson, Bel Ombre Road was being destroyed in a blaze,” recounted Jones Madeleine, the Public Relations Officer at the Seychelles Fire and Rescue Agency (SFRSA). When they got there, he said, the house was completely in flames.

Fortunately, there was no one living in the house as seems to have been used for other purposes by people residing in the vicinity. In their preliminary report, Mr. Madeleine said that they are assuming the fire started as a result of someone leaving a piece of cigarette on the ground. But he said there is nothing conclusive yet on this matter. It took the fire fighters ten minutes to put the fire under control as there were lots of cinders and a ‘coconut husk fibre mattress’ in the house which caused the fire to propagate easily.

The house was completely burned down. Mr. Madeleine is once more appealing to members of the public to take precautions while handling fire in any and all circumstances so as to reduce the risk of further fire incidents. He said the number of fire incidents are still on the rise and people need to be more conscious about their practices.
