Fire fighters on Ambergris Caye were at the scene of a fire just before six o’clock on Sunday, December 27 in the Escalante sub-division area on the island.  Reports reaching Love News are that a 34-year-old mechanic, Ricardo Valladarez was awoken at around five on Sunday morning by the smell of smoke.  Further inspection led Valladarez to find that his house, made of plycem and wood, was on fire.  Destroyed in the blaze were two structures, Valladarez’ home measuring twenty four by twenty six feet and a storage room measuring ten by ten feet.  In addition to the buildings being consumed by the fire, three vehicles that were on the property to be repaired were also destroyed.  Neither the structure nor its contents was insured.
