A family of five (5) is now counting their blessings after they, along with the help of ranks of the Guyana Fire Service (GFS), managed to extinguish a fire that allegedly started in a shack in the family’s year while they were all asleep last night.
According to a police statement, the incident took place around 20: 20h at Better Hoe Railway Embankment, East Coast Demerara (ECD).
Fifty (50)- year-old Charran Sahadeo told the cops that he, his wife, and their three (3) children awoke to the sight of fire and black smoke “through the bedroom window emanating from a shack in the yard which is occupied by the victim’s brother.”
