PHILIPSBURG:— Several residents of Plough Drive Cul de Sac are extremely relieved that the home that was severely damaged by fire last week was demolished on Friday. The residents along with the owner of the home who was having a hard time obtaining a demolition permit met with the Minister of VROMI Christopher Emmanuel on Wednesday afternoon at the site. The Minister saw the danger the residents were facing with the damaged house still standing at the location and the risk they were facing. At that meeting, the residents said Minister Emmanuel asked them to give him until Friday. They said that Minister Emmanuel is a man of his word because on Friday an excavator and workers from the Ministry showed up at the location and demolished the damaged home.
The residents said they are at ease now that the building is no longer there and that the children in the neighborhood can move around safely.
