Authorities say that around 10:30 p.m., the neighbors of 56-year -old Nicholas Reyes began to smell smoke and learned that his house was on fire.
Personnel from the Belize National Fire Service showed up and made attempts to rescue Reyes while trying to extinguish the blaze, however, their efforts were fruitless.
