Police Public Relations Officer Sergeant Kenth Matthew says the burnt remains of an individual was removed from the building, believed to be that of an elderly woman who occupied the top floor.He said the fire may have started about eleven (11) pm on November 21st, 2011 and originated in a one story building on King George the V Street owned by Bernard Julien of Roseau. “That fire also substantially damaged the second floor of a neighboring two story building. Damian Shillingford and his wife, who were unhurt, occupied that floor. An elderly lady, Vernie Julian, very close to her 80’s, occupied that floor above the jewelry store at the time of the fire. The remains of a human being was discovered this morning Tuesday November 22 2011. It is assumed that it is the remains of Vernie Julian. The remains had no lower limbs. We assumed that it’s her but we cannot confirm,” he said.Here are a few photographs of the fire scene this morning: [nggallery id=91]Meantime Fire Officials are responding to criticisms that they did not react in a timely manner to when called about the fire on Monday evening.Acting Public Relations Officer of the Fire and Ambulance Services Officer Wayne Letang says officials responded immediately after the report was made.“We received the call last night about 11:30 and it was done by someone who came into the station. At 11:31pm two of our officers went to the scene. On arrival we saw that the building was totally ablaze and immediately our officers were at work,” he said.Letang is also calling on the media to be more professional in their reporting.“I want to inform the media that sometimes the information that they put out is not always confirmed and they need to make sure of that. I want the public to also find the proper information before they say anything on the media,” he warned.Dominica Vibes News Tweet 34 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!

Inventor Flint Lockwood’s genius is finally being recognized as he’s invited by his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. Chester’s right-hand-gal – and one of his greatest inventions – is Barb (a highly evolved orangutan with a human brain, who is also devious, manipulative and likes to wear lipstick). It’s always been Flint’s dream to be recognized as a great inventor, but everything changes when he discovers that his most infamous machine (which turns water into food) is still operating and is now creating food-animal hybrids – “foodimals!” With the fate of humanity in his hands, Chester sends Flint and his friends on a dangerously delicious mission, battling hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world again!last_img read more
