Grocery store destroyed by fire in Rural Belize

A grocery store was destroyed by a fire last night in Rockstone Pond Village on the Old Northern Highway. The blaze broke out sometime after 11:00 o’clock at Cost Less Grocery Store which was a wooden and zinc structure. The owner, 27-year-odl Errol Hemsley told Love News that he was sleeping when he smelled something burning. When he woke up, he saw the store engulfed in flames. Hemsley says he contacted the fire department, however, they never appeared. Police arrived at the scene but by that point, the blaze had already destroyed the structure. Hemsley lost everything and says the fire personnel are to return to conduct an official assessment and ascertain the cause of the blaze.
