By then, the two-storied building, constructed from wood, was completely damaged.When Guyana Times arrived at the scene, neighbours indicated that vagrants would usually take shelter in the bottom flat of the house, which was unenclosed. The property stood without any fence and this allowed anyone to enter the yard.Only a shell remains intact as the upper flat was severely burnt. Apart from this structure, there weren’t any other buildings in close proximity that were threatened at the time of the fire.last_img
