Nov 16, 2010 News Comments Off on Guyanese watchman dies in fire
Trinidad and Tobago-A night watchman died in a fire on the compound of a Penal sawmill early Sunday morning.
The charred remains of Dinesh Gudar, 33, a Guyanese, were found about 7 am by firemen from the Siparia Fire Station who responded to the report of a fire at Industrial Sawmilling Ltd., at Penal Rock Road, Penal.
The firemen arrived at the sawmill within minutes of the call, but the flames had already engulfed the make-shift apartment where Gudar was staying on the compound. Investigators believe Gudar may have flicked a lit cigarette onto the floor of the wooden structure and it may have ignited.
A section of the sawmill, where wood is treated to safeguard against termites, was not damaged.
Police investigators said Gudar lived in the makeshift apartment and worked at the sawmill as a night watchman. He was alone when the fire broke out, the investigators added.
A resident said she did not realise there had a been a fire since there was not much smoke or noise.
“I went out, returned late and went to bed. When I woke up I heard that there was a fire. I did not even know that someone died in it,” she said.
Officers of the Barrackpore Police Station are continuing investigations. (TrinidadNewsday)
