By BBN Staff: Belize City Police are currently looking for Jose Alberto Rivera for questioning.

On Friday, June 24 sometime around 9:45 p.m. members of the fire department were dispatched to extinguish a fire that started at a yellow two storey cement house located on #182 East Collet Canal Street. The property belongs to 80-year-old Inez Gillett.

Initial investigations had revealed that 52-year-old Santos Perez, a Honduran national, was at home on the first floor along with her daughter when her common-law husband Rivera arrived home and started to behave disorderly.

Santos and her daughter went over to her neighbor’s house for safety. Shortly after she noticed that her house was on fire.

No one was injured and the total amount of damages is yet to be ascertained.

The cause of fire reportedly was as a result from burning the mattresses from the two separate bedrooms.
