Investigation reveals early morning fire in DFC home was deliberately ignited

An investigation led by the local fire service into the cause of a blaze that destroyed four golf carts and damaged the front part of a house in the DFC subdivision south of San Pedro Town has been classified as an incendiary (arson) fire. The tragedy significantly affected Evelyn Cordon, 37, and her family. They need help, and if anyone can assist, they can be reached at 614-7280.

This is the second time this family has suffered losses due to fire. In September 2021, an early morning fire gutted a structure that served as a small grocery shop. No one was injured, but the material losses were estimated to be over BZ$25,000. The fire destroyed everything inside the shop, including freezers full of goods, one with ice cream they had recently added to their business. The loss was considered devastating, and arson was suspected. Police did not provide a follow-up report if anyone was charged with the crime. Residents in the DFC area hope police start an investigation now that the incident is classified as arson. They hope the responsible person or persons are dealt with, and the crime does not remain in impunity.
