The Royal Grenada
Police Force (RGPF) is carrying out investigations into a fire which occurred in
the early hours of January 9th 2020 that resulted in significant
damages to several buildings and two parked vehicles on Grenville Street, St
The Fire Department
arrived on scene within five (5) minutes of the initial report. However, upon
arrival at the scene, the commencement of fire suppression was delayed due to
the fact that the affected buildings were still energized with electrical
power, which posed an electrocution risk to the responders.
The RGPF would
like to thank the Grenada Airport Authority, St. George’s University and
GRENLEC for their support in responding to this incident. We also empathize
with affected persons and businesses who suffered losses as a consequence of
the fire and assures the nation that a definitive statement will be broadcast
at the culmination of the investigation.
