Third fire at gov’t office in St. Kitts and Nevis
A fire did serious damage on Friday to a Treasury Department building on Nevis, ruining records and computer services that an official on the Caribbean island said were vital to government operations, the Associated Press reported.
The fire, the third at a government building in the two-island federation of St. Kitts and Nevis this month, had engulfed the building in Charlestown by the time authorities arrived on scene before dawn, said Acting Fire Chief Everette O’Garro.
The cause was under investigation.
On Jan. 5, fires that were deliberately set destroyed the Venezuelan Embassy and damaged the offices of the Organization of American States on St. Kitts.
