NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Police are trying to determine what caused a fire that destroyed three homes in a Haitian community in Kool Acres, last night. A single mother, who lost her home and everything in it, says she was only able to save their documents.

A blaze in this Haitian community off Kool Acres Subdivision has left several families, including Tiffany Rubin, her two-year-old daughter, and sister homeless.

According to Police Press Liaison Officer ASP Audley Peters, fire services arrived on the scene shortly before 8pm Sunday.
