By BBN Staff: There was a fire this morning in Hopkins Village, Stann Creek District where authorities later found the body of the proprietor inside the building’s remains.
Reports are that around 2:01 a.m. authorities were called to Rainbow Restaurant on the southside of Hopkins to find the building engulfed in flames.
Kimani Williams who lives on the property told authorities that he woke up to find smoke coming from the building and called for the proprietor but got no response, so he sought assistance from a neighbour to call police. Once Belize National Fire Service (BNFS) personnel had extinguished the fire, they retrieved the body of 39-year-old Jing Deng Tan.
Tan’s body was taken to the Southern Regional Hospital Morgue where it awaits a post mortem examination.
The BNFS is conducting an investigation into the cause of the fire.
