Fire guts home behind the cemetery

Spaces have run out at the Lord Ridge Cemetery in Belize City.  But today fire trucks and police officers were both hustling through the cemetery to out a fire. A home built in an area off Antelope Street Extension caught on fire.  The investigation is still ongoing but some investigators point to faulty wires as a possible cause of the inferno. But one girl, fourteen year old Deisy Caraly, told News Five that a young man has threatened in the recent past to burn down her home.
