The island nation of Barbados has been rocked by the deaths of two residents after a fire on the Caribbean island last month.
The deaths have sparked a massive firefighting operation that has so far destroyed more than 70 homes, according to the Associated Press.
In a statement, the Barbados government said the two died on July 26, a day after the blaze broke out.
The government also said that the cause of the fire was not immediately clear.
The Associated Press previously reported that the villas are owned by the government.
It was unclear if the government owned the villa, or if it was owned by a private developer.
A fire at a nearby house is also currently under investigation.
The villas were constructed in 2008 and 2010, according the Associated News.
The island has a population of about 2.8 million, making it one of the wealthiest in the Caribbean.
