Head of the Kingston Central Police, Superintendent Berrisford Williams says so far, there is no indication that this morning’s (August 16) fire on Text Lane in Downtown was caused by arsonists.
The fire, which occurred at about 3 AM, is the second such incident to take place recently.
Last week, at least 30 people, including children were left homeless after fire gutted their homes.
Residents are reportedly blaming the fires on arsonists, but the police have not confirmed this claim.
Superintendent Williams said based on preliminary investigations, this morning’s fire was not caused by criminals.
He noted, however, that a more intensive probe is being conducted to confirm preliminary findings.
