An elderly woman was able to avoid injuries last night after she realized that one of the houses in her yard was on fire.  77-year-old, Aminda Avilez was inside her home on Pedro Guerra Street in Benque Viejo del Carmen, Cayo District when she heard a loud explosion just after nine o’clock last night.  Upon looking out a window from the main house she saw that the house behind her was on fire.  Avilez managed to exit the 20 by 15 wooden structure minutes later.  Reports indicate that preliminary investigations show that the cause of the fire may be related to faulty electrical connection.
