Two Buildings Destroyed by Fire in Orange Walk

A building, once used as housing quarters for nurses in the Orange Walk District, was completely destroyed by fire on Saturday afternoon. The blaze broke out sometime around four o’clock and consumed the wooden structure that was located on Main Street near the Banquitas House of Culture. According to fire personnel, while they were in the middle of refilling the firetruck that was being used in that fire, they received information that another fire was taking place on Stadium Street. Upon arrival, they observed a wooden structure measuring about twenty-five feet by fifteen feet completely destroyed by fire. Initial investigation revealed that at about five-thirty, a man, who lives opposite the structure, saw smoke coming from inside. He then went to his neighbor’s apartment to alert him, but no one was at home. The landlord, seventy-four-year-old Adolfo Toledano stated that the wooden structure had five small rooms and had three tenants but no one was at home. Toledano said that each room had a bed with a mattress and the total value is yet to be ascertained. The Fire Department continues their investigations into both fires.
