A major blaze was averted on Lower Swan Street the City after a clothing store caught fire last night.
The Barbados Fire Service was quick to respond to the call about 10-past-8.
The fire was contained to the business, BSharp.
One neighbouring store sustained heat damage and another store's door had to be breached for access to the fire officers.
Chief Fire Officer Errol Maynard says efforts were hampered as the blaze occurred in the back of the Swan Street building.
