A family of five in the Cayo District is displaced after a fire completely destroyed their home yesterday afternoon in Camalote Village. The blaze broke out at around two o’clock and gutted a wooden structure in the Good Living Ranch area of the village. Despite efforts of fire fighters, the home and all its content were destroyed. Cayo Correspondent Fem Cruz spoke to the victim Frederick Garden about the tragic incident.
Frederick Garden, Fire Victim: “After 2, I was at home working on a little cement house that I am building in the same yard where the house burned down. While working on the house, I was listening to music from a computer and a bluetooth speaker inside my house. So when I realised that the music stopped, I went to see the reason why the music stopped and that’s when I realised that the house was in flames and burning.”
Fem Cruz, Love FM News: So what did you do?
Frederick Garden, Fire Victim: “So I then tried to put out the fire. After trying to put out the fire, it did not work so I called the fire truck and it came but whenever the fire truck arrived the house had already burned.”
