The Royal Barbados Police Force is investigating a house fire which broke out at about 5:35 pm yesterday, at Lower Carter's Gap, Christ Church.
That blaze completely destroyed the home of 63-years-old Dorian Burke - a wooden two bedroom property with no electricity.
Police said: "Burke left his home to go lime with some friends, moments later he was alerted by two men that his house was on fire. He returned home but the house had already gone up in flames. The entire property was destroyed by the fire."
The house was not insured.
Two fire tenders and seven personnel responded and extinguished the blaze about 6:15 pm.
Police investigations into this matter continue.
