Basseterre, St. Kitts, November 28, 2017 (RSCNPF): At about 2:35 a.m. November 27, the police received a report of a fire at Haynes Smith Village. They responded and, upon arrival, officers from the St. Kitts-Nevis Fire and Rescue Services were already at the scene extinguishing flames from the northeastern corner of the Labour Constituency Office for Constituency No. 3 which is a wooden structure.

The fire was reported by a member of the community who observed smoke coming from a window on the eastern side of the office.
