Tuesday Morning Fire in Belize City Leaves Mother of Seven Pleading for Help

A house fire on Curassow Street in Belize City has left a mother of seven publicly pleading for assistance. Judith Parham was paying her sister a visit at the hospital when she received a phone call informing her that her home for the past sixteen years was on fire. There are speculations that the fire may have been started by her mentally ill granduncle who occasionally slept under the wooden structure.
