Fire destroys house at Glover’s Reef

Most people are at home when a fire starts or hear about it shortly afterwards but this was not the case for a fire on one of the remote islands of Glover’s Reef. Twenty-two year old Christopher Kuylen was more than surprised when his insurance company, G.A. Roe and Sons, called him around nine o’clock Thursday morning to inform him that they had received reports that his house had burned to the ground. The house and its contents, valued at $60,000 are fully insured. Kuylen says fishermen are known to use the island as a camping ground but he cannot say if any was involved in this incident. Dangriga police suspect arson but have yet to make an arrest.
