Residents in communities across the country are being advised to ensure that there is an escape route from their homes, in the event of a fire.


The advice came from the Fire Department of the local Police Force, in the wake of a recent spate of fires, which has led, in some cases, to loss of life.

Station Sergeant Michael Bess, said that families must ensure that they can escape from their homes, especially if the fire has reached an advanced stage.

He noted that persons should also have alternative exits, because one or more of the entrances could be blocked.
