Investigation Still Underway into Dangriga House Fire

Joseph Myvett

On Friday, a fire completely destroyed a wooden house in Dangriga. Around seven-thirty that morning, fire broke out at a residence on George Price Drive, but though firefighters responded quickly, they were unable to contain the blaze. Today, police told the media that investigation into the cause of the fire is still underway.

“They observed a wooden house engulfed in flames. It was reported to them by the owner of the house, one Jason Cacho, that he was outside of the home and he saw smoke coming from one of the rooms. The fire department was called but they were unable to extinguish the fire so the building was completely destroyed. The building, nor its contents, was insured. At this time, the cause of fire has still not yet been determined.”
