“This information has just been received to us as we speak. Like you mentioned, I have a truck at four team members. We received a call from the police of a structural fire in Rockville which sits approximately twenty one miles on the Western Highway. We will await confirmation of such and I will definitely give you a feed back as soon as the information trickles down.” 


We later learnt that a concrete building was completely destroyed by the blaze. Reports are that no one was at home prior to the fire. Investigators have concluded that this fire is as a result of an electrical flaw. The occupants of this were allegedly accessing direct current from B.E.L.’s pole.
