Fire Destroys Belize City House

A woman remains hospitalized tonight after she was caught in a house fire on Thursday night. The fire erupted at the residence of Kendrick Nunez on Unity Street in Belize City. He was away at work and his common-law-wife was asleep when the fire began inside the bedroom. Everything inside the house was destroyed. Nunez, a security guard, rushed from his job site in Ladyville to his house where he met fire officials dousing the flames. He says that the cause of the fire is yet to be determined.

 

On the Phone Kendrick Nunez, Fire Victim

On the Phone: Kendrick Nunez

“It destroyed inside the room our bedroom mattress. We lose all, two windows. We lose, the plycem are not good. The boards in the house are not good. The stove that I use is full with water. I went to work yesterday and I was off after six on the highway. My common-law was home taking a nap and I don t know what caused the incident because right now she is still in the hospital suffering from first degrees burns. She is just out of surgery to go to ward but the cost of the damage will cost about two thousand dollars with labour and everything. We were trying to seek assistance if we could because like I said I don’t have it like that. I want to try repair the place as quick as possible if I get assistance or help.”
