A single-family home in Estate Enighed was destroyed by fire early Christmas morning, according to the Virgin Island Fire Service.
At 2:26 a.m. Friday, both units from Fire Service’s Zulu Company responded to a 911 emergency call of structural fire at 7-7 Enighed. Upon arrival, fire personnel came upon a one-story residential structure fully engulfed in flames.
Fire personnel surrounded the structure and protected the adjacent structures, then proceeded to extinguish the fire, the news release said. Within 30 minutes, the fire was extinguished and fire personnel conducted their salvage and overhaul operations as they searched the structural debris for any signs of hidden fires and hotspots.
All units returned to their duty stations at 5:05 a.m.
The St. Thomas/ St. John Arson and Preventive Investigative Unit is investigating the fire.
