Second Victim of Elston Kerr Street Fire Seeks Assistance

A wooden house on Elston Kerr Street in Belize City, scorched previously in a fire caused by a fire hearth left unattended three weeks ago, is now completely gutted after fire struck again Sunday morning. The front face of the dwelling behind it was blackened and scars showed on a third house joined to the second. While no one occupied the house, its owner, domestic Dawn Faber of Racoon Street Extension lost all her belongings that were stored there. Faber and her daughter, with whom she is currently staying, visited News Five’s studios this afternoon to ask for assistance to put her life back together.

And now they come for assistance, showing my house on the T.V. and that’s why I come to clear the point of that.  My daughter seh, ‘Mammy get up!” because four-thirty the morning, the second, my daughter seh get up because Mammy, you house deh pah fire again. And so four-thirty we get up and we gaan out deh. The fireman done out the fire when we get deh and that was it.”



“But it was far too late to save anything?”
