Overnight: 2 Attempts to Torch a Property on Antelope Street

A residence situated next door to Unity Presbyterian Church on Antelope Street Extension was set on fire twice overnight by someone intent on reducing the elevated wooden structure to cinders.  Sometime around eleven p.m. on Thursday, a neighbor observed the rear of the property on fire.  He immediately sprung into action and with assistance from others in the vicinity, doused the flames with water.  Just before daybreak today the home was once again torched using torn pieces of cardboard.  For a second time in less than five hours, flames at the rear of the building had to be extinguished.  An initial police investigation reveals that forty-four-year-old Oscar Williams left the house en route to Dangriga on Wednesday morning.  Sometime shortly after five o’clock this morning, police on mobile patrol in the area were drawn to smoke emanating from the back of Williams’ house.  According to police, several persons were questioned but they were unable to provide much information.
