A retired employee of the Belize City council is lucky to be alive after escaping from a burning building then being beaten by his neighbors over the weekend. The incident occurred in the wee hours of Saturday morning and has left more questions than answers. That’s because the police department’s version of the incident differs from the one given by the fire department. The police reported that a woman was inside the home at the time of the blaze but as our newsroom found out only an elderly man was at the home when the fire erupted. Reporter Vejea Alvarez visited the scene of the fire to get answers. Here’s what he found out today.
