Fire officials have refused to confirm nor deny suggestions about a possible link between a fire which destroyed the Verve Bar in Rodney Bay in the wee hours of this morning and another inferno that destroyed at least three businesses in the same vicinity earlier this year.

One man was arrested and charged with arson in the January 26th blaze that officials determined was deliberately set.

Five months later the popular Verve bar has been destroyed in flames, leaving an unestimated amount of damage. Station Officer for Castries Germaine Williams says at this point investigations are ongoing into the matter.

According to Mr Williams the call was registered around 3am, and despite a level of difficulty firefighters were able to contain and extinguish the blaze.

Investigations into what caused the fire are continuing.
