Family of 10 homeless after fire in Petit Bourg

A family of ten is now homeless after fire gutted their Petit Bourg home on Monday.

Around 11am, Moesha Sotillo – who is almost eight months pregnant – was in the house alone when she was awoken by a phone call from her sister-in-law Marian “Lana” Bradshaw-Allicock asking for help to pick up her daughter from school in St Joseph.

When Sotillo walked out to the gallery of their Church Hill Extension home, she saw smoke and realised the house was on fire.

She told police she ran outside and immediately messaged Bradshaw-Allicock and alerted neighbours.

Reports state that the Fire tenders arrived about an hour later, and was then unable to reach the house, due to the number of cars parked on the street.
There was also no water available in the community.

Fire officers had to drive to nearby Irving Street to get access to the flat concrete house. But by the time they got there, the house had already been gutted.
