A house in the South Leeward village of Upper Questelles was set on fire Sunday night and the occupants shot at as they attempted to escape the inferno.

The blaze at the wooden house, which had a concrete bathroom, began sometime after 2 a.m. Monday, residents of the village said.

iWitness News understands that the occupants of the house were Kimani Williams, of Upper Questelles, as well as Rillan Hill resident, Jamalo Dunbar, who is in his late 20s.

iWitness News understands that Williams, who is said to be his late 30s or early 40s and is also known as “Triple Gold”, was shot to the left side as he escaped the burning house.

Dunbar escaped unhurt.

Williams underwent surgery on Monday but iWitness was unable to determine his condition.

Residents of the area said they hear several gunshots and saw flames at the house when they went to check on what was happening.

The house is believed to have been set on fire using Molotov cocktails, known locally as “flambeaus”.

Two fire engines responded but were unable to save the burning building.

Police are investigating.

  1. Give me a break! The treasury building was a stone throw away from the fire trucks and it burnt to the ground. The communities have to come together to protect their lives and properties. How many times must I say this? I don’t believe they have to wait for Ralph or Arnhim to take steps to protect their villages and towns. Politicians are only looking after their families and not the population. When will Vincentians wake up?

  2. Well since me born Vincentian being mispronouncing the sweet little island name I guess after all these years she finally decided that enough is enough and say am gonna live up to what they call me and what they want me to be Sin Vincent.
