Family homeless, two constables hurt in house fire

Two Special Constables required hospital treatment for smoke inhalation while responding to a house fire on Cruz Lane in George Town early Sunday (31 July).

Cayman 27 crews attended the scene. Three families have been affected by the blaze, one has been left homeless as a result of the fire that gutted their house.

Resident Eldon Walton told Cayman 27 he used water from a well near the premises to manage the fire until authorities arrived. He said he received slight burns on his face from helping to put out the blaze.

An RCIPS statement says emergency services was notified around 1:43 a.m. that a small wooden house was on fire. While the fire was brought under control less than 15 minutes later, the two constables, who were among the first responders, required conveyance to the Cayman Islands Hospital by ambulance. Police says both were later released.

There was no immediate report as to the cause of the fire.

We will have more on this story tomorrow on Daybreak at 7a.m. and Cayman 27 News at 6p.m.
