Arson in San Pedro

Just before dawn on Thursday, a fire broke on Rainbow Street in the D.F.C area of San Pedro Town. A small wooden structure that was once Jays Store was engulfed in flames when authorities arrived at the scene. The shop was owned by Yesica Cordon, who was asleep when she received a call from her sister who informed her that her shop was on fire. The structure and all its contents were destroyed. But as it turns out, police are investigating the incident as a case of arson as evidence so far indicates that the fire may have been deliberated set. While the building was not insured, Cordon says that it is valued at ten thousand Belize dollars, while the contents inside had a value of approximately twenty-five thousand dollars.
