Belize City Fire Classified as Arson

There is another fire which police have classified as arson.  On Friday night, the first floor of a two-storey building on East Collet Canal, Belize City went up in flames.  But the blaze was fortunately contained by the Fire Department before it could spread.  It is suspected that the fire was set by Alberto Rivera, an occupant of the house who was acting up on Friday night. Rivera is the son-in-law of fifty-two-year-old Honduran national, Santos Perez; both lived at the house.  Santos and his daughter left the house and went to the neighbour, but soon after the building went up in flames. The fire is believed to have started from two mattresses in separate bedrooms.  The building is the property of eighty-year-old Inez Gillett of Cleghorn Street, Belize City.
