Arson was the cause of Red Cross Fire

Fire authorities have removed an accelerant bottle and rags that were used to set on fire the Belize Red Cross Society’s headquarters early Thursday morning. But up to news time, police have been unable to crack who was behind the arson. The fire was reported shortly after three on Thursday morning and the bottle of the lighter fluid was found along with a screw driver near a window that had been pried open.  Some relief supplies, office equipment, documents and other supplies were destroyed in the blaze with the exception of a few items in a room furthest away from the blaze. The loss has been estimated at around three hundred thousand dollars. The building is located at the corner of Gabourel Lane and Daly Street and fire officials were able to contain the blaze before it could spread to adjacent buildings.
