FOR the third time in five weeks, a Castara family had to flee for safety after their home caught fire on Sunday.
The family was staying in a rented apartment not far from their previous house, which was gutted on Christmas Eve. That house, which was owned by Gloria George, was valued at $1.1 million. She lived there with nine relatives.
One of George's daughters had lost her Castara home to fire three weeks earlier.
Asst Chief Fire Officer, Tobago division, David Thomas, told Newsday on Monday, the blaze started around 3pm on Sunday. He said investigations are at a sensitive stage.
PDP deputy leader Farley Augustine, who is seeking a second term as Speyside/L'Anse Fourmi/ Parlatuvier electoral representative, had assisted the family after the first and second fires.
The Tobago House of Assembly Social Services department was expected to visit the family after Christmas to see what help it could offer.
