A fire broke out at WASA's headquarters in St. Joseph today.
According to our sources, the blaze began in the registry department on the second floor of the main administration building.

CNC3 understands the blaze was contained to the second floor which also houses the corporate communications and health and safety departments.

Fire officials say the blaze began shortly before five this afternoon.
We are told that the I-T department and data centre are located on the third floor directly above the blaze.

WASA's Communications Manager Daniel Plenty advises that the building will remain closed until further notice.

Just over two weeks ago, the new WASA board ordered a forensic audit into the utility because it says it observed irregularities.
