KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – This photo, sent to I-Witness News on Monday, shows employees at the 5-star Buccament Bay Resort in Buccament Bay, South Leeward, using buckets and garden hoses to put out a fire at the resort on Monday.
I-Witness News has so far failed in its attempts to contact the management of the resort about the cause of the fire. However, reports say that the fire might have been started by disgruntled employees for non-payment of wages.

It offers a variety of activities to cater for all interests, including the Liverpool Football Club Soccer School, Pat Cash Tennis Academy, the Harlequin Performing Arts Academy and The Spa with treatments by ESPA.
