By Aaron Humes: Police and Fire Service personnel are investigating a house fire reported on Tuesday afternoon on Balan Street in the Lake Independence area of Belize City.

According to resident Justo Augustine, 37, he had been outside in the yard around 4 p.m. and entered his green and peach elevated wooden house about five minutes later, only to find it on fire. Father Theodore Augustine said he was nearby at a neighbour’s when he heard an “explosion” and saw Justo leaving the house, with smoke trailing behind him.

The house and its contents, not insured, were valued at $6,000. According to Justo, the house had no electricity, and the cause of the fire has not been confirmed as investigations continue.
