Fire destroys industrial site storage bond.
The fire razed through the storage bond shared by Payless Variety store and Comfort Sleep leaving millions in damage and several persons without jobs. One of the disappointments for firefighters was the non-working fire hydrant in the prime business area. The sourcing of water from the drains and canal was difficult for firefighters. For several minutes the firemen were like spectators watching the blaze sweeping through the bond.
When this newscast arrived on the scene three-fire tenders were there but provided little help. Eyewitnesses are reporting that the fire started at the Payless Section of the building.
Amanda Chung one of the company’s managers said this unforeseen incident would be a major setback for the company.
An emotional operational manager Deodat Narine said the fire was a big blow to the company.
Narine said the business was insured. Eventually the firemen were able to source water and got down to work. They managed to save the factory which was under threat. The origin of that fire is still to be determined.
