– cops say man in black fled scene
An arsonist is believed to have started Saturday night’s fire, which gutted several businesses housed in a building on Cummings Street.
Police and fire fighters shared this view, after finding evidence of forced entry at the building.
Reports have revealed that persons in the vicinity smelled gasoline, just before the fire started at Ram’s Pharmacy. ‘A’ Division Commander, Assistant Commissioner Clifton Hicken said police ranks chased a man dressed in black who was seen running away from the building. The man escaped.
Police Officials said there is evidence of forced entry to the lower flat of the building as two holes were found in the concrete wall aback Ram’s Pharmacy and another leading from the drug store into a clothing store.
Kaieteuer News spoke with the owners of a cell shop which was also gutted by the fire. This business is also housed in the same building. The owners said the fire started around 23:00 hrs Saturday night. The owner added that she was unable to estimate her losses at the moment and revealed that the business was uninsured.
“This is the second time we have had a fire, the first one was a small fire,” the business owner lamented.
Operations Officer at the Guyana Fire Service (GFS), Compton Sparman said the GFS responded with four tenders and were able to extinguish the blaze. Sparman commended the Guyana Water Incorporated which increased water pressure to the area.
