Both the Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service and Police responded to the scene, and firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze. Before the firefighters left the area, they thanked 8-year-old Kyasia for her quick action after spotting the fire.

Update Nov 12 – 5.46am: The fire restarted again in the same area at approximately 4am this morning, and firefighters returned to the scene.
