One man is dead and three people homeless after an early morning fire at Easter Field Road, Tobago, in the early hours of Monday.
Dead is Anthony Charles, 61, whom family say suffered from a mental disorder.
According to the Divisional Fire Officer, the Scarborough Fire Station received reports of a fire at 3.40 am. When firefighters got to the scene they were told three of four people had been accounted for.
When the firefighters doused the flames and searched the property they found Charles’ remains in one of the bedrooms.
