Fire destroys Clarendon bar

A bar owner in Osbourne Store, Clarendon is this morning counting her losses after her business place was last night destroyed by fire.

Tanisha Lynch, popularly called Apple, said she left the bar about 7 o'clock last night and went home to Ebony Park.

Sometime after, she learned that her business place was on fire.

Lynch believes it was deliberately set.

She says she had just bought a new fridge and estimates that she had more than $250,000 worth of stock.

The bar was also robbed on Ash Wednesday night.

Residents say the area is plagued by violence and want Prime Minister designate Andrew Holness to visit soon.
