Seven people, including a pensioner and three children, are homeless after a fire destroyed their two-storey house in Glamorgan, Tobago.

Divisional fire officer David Thomas told Newsday fire officials received a call at approximately 2,27 am on Monday about the house fire at George Street in Glamorgan, Tobago East.

The house was owned by 86-year-old Thelma Jarvis and housed three other adults, 59, 55, and 32, as well as three children, 16, 13 and ten.

The cause of the blaze has not yet been determined, as Thomas said investigations are still ongoing.
