Fire completely destroys four-bedroom house on Praslin

An intense fire completely destroyed a four-bedroom house at Pointe Cabris, Praslin yesterday afternoon.

Despite the efforts of the fifteen-strong Seychelles Fire and Rescue Services Agency (SFRSA) crew, faced with intense flames that had taken over the whole residence and lack of water facilities in the area, it took at least an hour and a half to completely put out the flames.

As per Assistant Divisional Officer Antoine Souris, the SFRSA received the call at around 11.55am, it would seem from passersby or persons working in the area, and four of its vehicles were deployed, namely, two water tenders, a pick-up truck and an SUV.
