On Wednesday, January 21, around 1:00 a.m. the San Pedro Fire Department responded to a fire in the D.F.C area, the house belonged to Mr. Francisco “Pany” Arceo, 55 year-old Belizean. The structure was a two story building, the upper level was being rented by police officers and the bottom floor housed “One Love Grocery” store. Mr. Arceo resided in the building adjacent the store. The small building where Mr. Arceo stayed was completely burnt down, while the upstairs building and the store received minor damages.

Fire Update
Although fire officials have been unable to say what caused the blaze on Wednesday morning, they have been able to state where the fire actually began. The two storey wooden building ignited from the living quarters occupied by owner, Francisco “Panny” Arceo. Arceo, who works on North Ambergris Caye, had left home two days prior to the incident. In Arceo’s line of work he utilizes thinners which he kept at home. According to neighbors they heard an explosion from his room.
Arceo who originally had pegged his losses at $52,000 has now upped his estimate to $62,000. His home was insured, however, Mohamed Harmouch who lived on the other side of the lower flat, lost a major part of his personal belongings. As part of his personal belongings was his business, One Love Grocery which was also housed on the lower flat. Unfortunately for him, nothing was insured.
