Firefighters had late Sunday night brought under control the raging inferno that gutted the buildings in Kingstown that formerly housed the Electoral Office and the Treasury Department.
There were intermittent flare-ups some five hours after the fire was discovered in the buildings, located on Egmont and Halifax Street.
The Fire Brigade in Kingstown was assisted by a fire truck dispatched from E.T. Joshua Airport in Arnos Vale.
A senior member of the Police Force at the scene told I-Witness News that he was not yet in a position to comment on the fire.
It was not clear whether any damage was done to the building that houses the Registry, which is located next to old Treasury Building, which was also gutted.
Some Registry staff members entered the building under police escort Sunday night but left shortly after.
Sunday’s fire was the second in the nation’s capital in a week. A blaze last week Sunday gutted Coreas Mini Mart, located on Lower Bay Street, leaving EC$2 million in damage and loss, store officials have said.
