Cause of house fire is a mystery to Fire Department

HOUSE FIRE.00_00_16_12.Still002

A man is homeless after his house and belongings were destroyed by fire in Belize City. A firefighting team was dispatched to Tigris Street on Sunday afternoon. 

A man is homeless after his house and belongings were destroyed by fire in Belize City. A firefighting team was dispatched to Tigris Street on Sunday afternoon.  They were initially responding to a bushfire but when they arrived, they encountered that it was an 8×12 wooden structure belonging to 33-year-old Allan Phillip that was burnt. According to the Station Supervisor for the Belize National Fire Service, Kenneth Mortis, no one was at home when the structure caught on fire. He also commended the resident in the area for being the first responders.

Kenneth Mortis, Station Supervisor: “What is baffling for us and Mr.Phillips as well is what could have possibly caused this fire as the fire department investigators could not have come up with a definitive cause into this fire. We learnt that Mr.Philips had no electricity actually nothing in his house was electrified therefore that was one aspect that we could have definitely ruled out into the cause. Since he wasn’t at home at the time the building wasn’t occupied by anyone, we know that there wasn’t anything that could have left burning in terms of a candle or anything like that. We spoke with residents in the yard who confirmed that nobody visited his premises in his absence. Like I said it’s baffling because Mr.Philip’s apartment is a unique one he doesn’t have a door so to speak to secure his property. Any passerby within the premises or any somebody who was just a little bit mischievous could have accidentally started this fire but like I said everybody is sticking to one story, nobody was in the place, we didn’t find any accelerant to even lead to a mischievous act so you know unfortunately at this current juncture we cannot actually say how the fire started.”

The total damage is valued at approximately $2,000 – $3,000
