Family of four homeless after Laventille fire

With less than three weeks to go until Christmas, instead of shopping for gifts and household items, a Laventille family of four is now in need of a place to lay their heads.

Loop TT was informed that around 3:15 pm on Thursday, fire officers at the Belmont Fire Station responded to a call about a blaze at Soogrim Trace, Laventille. 

On arrival, they found a two-story house engulfed in flames.

The officers managed to prevent the fire from spreading to neighbouring homes however, the entire structure was destroyed.

The four occupants of the home are all safe.

A cause for the inferno has yet to be determined.

This story will be updated once more information becomes available.
