Toddler injured in San Pedro fire now in stable condition
And in an update to a fire on Monday at La Isla Bonita, six month old Tiarra Shantia Lara who received third degree burns to her head and hands is said to be in stable condition and still undergoing treatment at the K.H.M.H. The fire broke around three-thirty Monday afternoon in San Pedrito Area of Ambergris Caye, two wooden homes totally destroyed and the origin of the fire has still not been determined. The child and mother, Grace Westby, were the only ones at home when the fire started.
In San Ignacio, however, Giovanni Garcia is reporting that his four year old son set a couch on fire. The thirty-two year old father told police that he fell asleep and was awaken by the smell of smoke on Monday. Garcia found the couch on fire and managed to extinguish it by the time the fire fighters arrived. The four year old child apparently ignited the fire with a lighter. http://www.channel5belize.com/archive_detail_story.php?story_id=23557
