CRUZ BAY – Firefighters in St. John responded to a two-alarm blaze in Estate Enighed early Christmas morning.

Two units from Zulu Company got the 911 Emergency Call at 2:26 a.m. Friday that the house at #7-7 Enighed was engulfed in flames.

When firefighters arrived, they surrounded the one-story residential structure and were able to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby houses.

Within 30 minutes the fire was extinguished and Virgin Islands Fire Services conducted salvage and overhaul operations.

Then a safety inspection was performed by fire personnel. All units were back at their duty stations at 5:05 a.m. Christmas Day.

The fire is under investigation by the St. Thomas-St. John Arson and Preventative Investigative Unit.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
