houseThe cause of a fire that consumed and destroyed a home in Carmelita Village in Orange Walk is still being investigated, according to Orange Walk Fire officials. Authorities say they received a call of a fire around 8:25 last night and immediately dispatched a team to combat the flames. Upon arrival, firemen saw the 40 by 20 foot structure already completely consumed and their aim was to control the blaze. A neighbor and witness told us off camera that he is unsure what may have caused the blaze since the house was not powered by electricity and the occupants were not at home at the time.


WITNESS


“This fire started about around seven o’clock last night and the person that was staying here was Curtis Wade and his common-law and while the fire they still don’t appear until now we don’t know where Curtis Wade is so far.”

“What do you believe caused the fire?”


WITNESS


“Well, no one can’t say what caused the fire, this house had no current which we all back here we do have no current.”

“So they weren’t at home at the time of the fire and there was no current, so what you believe it is, is it arson?”


WITNESS


“Well, I can’t say it is arson because I didn’t saw anyone back here but it is really a funny play.”


Fire officials say the house and its contents were uninsured. The total estimated value of the home and items is reported at 22 thousand dollars.
