House fire on Cayman Brac

| 09/01/2009

(CNS): A man was seriously injured in a house fire on Cayman Brac Thursday afternoon, which reportedly started with an explosion. The Brac Fire Station was alerted to the fire in the ocean front house on the corner of Kirkconnell Street and Foster Road around 3:45 pm. The injured man, who was airlifted out of the Brac around 12:30 am Friday, was apparently one of three men working in the house at time of the explosion.

In the first house fire on the Brac for some 8 years, the interior of the back of the house appeared destroyed by flames and the front left with severe smoke damage. Police officers were also present at the scene.

Fire officers returned to the house Thursday evening after a call from a member of the public alerted them to the fact that a piece of plywood covering a back window was smoking.
