Home Burns Down in Maya Mopan; was it Arson?

Joseph Myvett

A second fire was reported in the south this week. Sometime around ten-thirty on Wednesday morning, a woman in Maya Mopan Village found her house on fire. Police report that the structure did have electricity but police say that they have information to suggest that the house was set on fire.

“Ophelia Coc reported to police that shortly after ten in the morning she departed her home to an area along the riverside which is about a mile away. She was later informed that her house was on fire. During interviews with her, no one was at home. She didn’t leave any fire or cooking inside her home which is a wooden and thatch structure. They are suspecting arson in relation to that. Police are following several leads and maybe looking for one person in connection with this incident.”
