Gosine fire ruled as arson
THE fire which broke out at the home of National Petroleum chairman Neil Gosine on Monday morning has been classified as an act of arson.
Police said they are working on several leads after receiving information that the Valsayn house was fire-bombed, which led to approximately $3 million in damage.
Also fire-bombed was Gosine's Honda Accord motorcar.
Investigators said Gosine had lodged a report at St Joseph Police Station on Monday morning following the blaze which stated that at around 2 a.m., he heard a noise coming from the front portion of the house and later noticed that the building was on fire.
Upon arriving at Gosine's home a short while after the fire broke out, police said fire officers also noticed that his car was engulfed in flames.
An apartment building which is located near to Gosine's home was also destroyed in the blaze.
Officers of the St Joseph station are continuing investigations into the incident.
