Fire has been contained; traffic is being diverted

The following was issued minutes ago by the ODPM. The Trinidad and Tobago Fire Services (TTFS) has advised that although the fire is currently under control, there is a possibility that the foam used to contain it, may dry up. In light of this and the present weather condition, there is the strong possibility that the fire may be re-ignited once again. The TTFS is working arduously on the scene to treat with this in the shortest possible time and to ensure that a re-ignition is minimised and controlled.

As a precautionary measure, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has cordoned off the area in the immediate vicinity of the explosion and has indicated that all westbound traffic is being diverted at Mausica Road with all eastbound traffic being diverted at Golden Grove Road at Bhagwansingh’s Hardware.

The National Petroleum Marketing Company Limited (NP) will conduct a final cleanup of the spilled gas later today and debris will be removed once the all clear is given.

The ODPM will advise further if there are any new developments.
