Sources have told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that the suspect, who is 19 years old, is a close relative of the owner of the house.

He is currently in custody at the Micoud Police Station and he’s expected to be charged with arson, which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Emergency services received the call at 10:55 a.m. and dispatched three fire engines from Micoud and Vieux Fort.

The fire destroyed the entire roof of the house as well as all its contents, fire officials said.

No one was at home at the time of the fire, and no other house was damaged, fire officials said.
