Weekend Fire Destroys Home in Burrell Boom

There was a fire on Friday evening in Burrell Boom that left a forty-year old Customs Guard homeless. Brian Estrada and his family are tonight without a roof over their heads after the wooden structure they called home went up in flames. Fighters responded shortly after the blaze started, but by then everything had been destroyed. ACP Edward Broaster told the media today that the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
