“Roaring Creek Police were called to St Matthew’s village to the home of Jose Ambeliz, a Guatemalan national, who reported to police that he received a telephone call that his home was on fire. So he rushed home where he observed his wooden house completely engulfed in flames. The fire department was unable to save any of his belongings, so both the home and his belongings were completely destroyed by fire. At the time of the fire, no one was at home at the residence. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.”
