Bush fires are common in the dry season which we are currently facing in Belize. Today, however was an extremely busy day for the firemen in the Belize District as there were several threats to homes and properties due to bush fires. While there was no loss of life or home, there was the loss of two horses in the Belize District. Love News spoke with Station Manager, Oren Smith on the protection of animals and other assets.
The horses were tied in the Western Pines area. Police suspect that this case may be one of arson and not a spontaneous combustion/bush fire in the area.
