A family of four in Guys Hill, St Catherine has been left homeless after their house was destroyed by a fire early this morning.
A man is being sought by the police in connection with the incident.
The mother and her three children in February received the house from charity organisation Food for the Poor.

The three children and their mother managed to escape through a back door.
It is reported that prior to the fire the man had allegedly threatened the woman that he was going to carry out the attack.
The occupants lost everything in the blaze.
