Fire in Belize City

Thursday, March 19, 2015. AARON HUMES Reporting: A late evening house fire in Belize City on Wednesday caused severe damage to the residence of two families and the business of one of them.

Police and fire officials responded to a house fire in progress at #144 A Allenby Street around 4:25 p.m. and spent the next hour and a half putting the flames out.

The upper flat, the residence of 54 year old Beverly Herrera, was completely destroyed, while the lower flat occupied by businessman 24 year old Jian Hong Yan, owner of Wing An Store, received water damage.

Fire officials are still gathering details but we understand that the fire may have started in the upper flat and quickly spread, although the lower flat was spared direct fire damage.

The fire was quick and concerned neighbors were prompted to remove their own household goods for fear of further spread.

Authorities are now investigating.
