POS City Corp denies fire at crematorium in St James


    The bright orange flare seen yesterday evening at the Crematorium in St James was not an uncontrolled fire, but the cremation of a large cadaver.

    In a release, the Port of Spain City Corporation responded to the circulation of a video on social media, with claims being made that the crematorium along Long Circular Road was on fire.

    It says the cremation in question resulted in an observable flare as well as a large amount of smoke being emitted from the chimney.
