A resident of Cantonment, Vieux Fort claims that a group of individuals attempted to set his house afire.
Alexander Kirby President, 32, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that while he was inside his home on Saturday, October 3 at around 10:30 p.m., gasoline was thrown on the house and set on fire.
President, who lives in a wooden house, said he was able to contain the fire by throwing water on it.
He said though the house was set on fire, he remained inside out of fear, until the police arrived.
“I summoned the police who responded minutes later and they came again, and are investigating,” he stated.
The Cantonment resident said he suspects three individuals might be responsible for the attempted arson.
“The first may have made good on his promise,” he told SNO.
Investigations into this incident continue.
