CHARLESTOWN, St. Kitts and Nevis (AP) -- A fire has damaged a government building in the Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis for the third time this month.

Acting Fire Chief Everette O'Garro says a fire early Friday largely destroyed a Treasury Department office complex on the island of Nevis. The cause is under investigation. O'Garro says it's not known if the incident is connected to the previous fires but he says it's unusual to have three similar incidents in a month in the small country.

On Jan. 5, fires that were deliberately set destroyed the Venezuelan Embassy and damaged the offices of the Organization of American States on St. Kitts. Two suspects were detained and later released. Prime Minister Denzil Douglas blamed allies of the opposition Unity Party, an allegation denied by party officials.
