Fire leaves Cedros family homeless

A call is being made for a fire station to be built in Cedros, after a fire left a couple and their three children homeless yesterday.

Forty-one-year-old Johnny Lalloo, a self-employed construction worker, his wife Natasha Paul, and their children spent last night at a neighbour’s house following the incident.

Lalloo said that around 4.10 pm, about five minutes after they left their St Marie village home to go for a drive, someone called to say their house was on fire.

He said when they got back their concrete and wooden house was completely engulfed in flames.
