No arrest in Vigilance Police Station fire; arson suspected
No arrest has been made in connection with the Vigilance Police Station fire, which destroyed one building and two vehicles.
The Guyana Fire Service, in a statement on Sunday, revealed that preliminary investigations found that the fire was an act of arson.
When contacted by the News Room on Monday, Regional Commander Khali Pareshram could not provide details on the fire. He however, noted that no one has been arrested and that there were no surveillance cameras where the incident occurred.
The fire occurred on September 21, 2021.
Meanwhile, the Guyana Fire Service (GFS) is pleading with citizens to call the toll-free number 912 as soon as they smell or see smoke, to report a fire emergency.
“Too often people try to extinguish fires on their own or to save valuables before contacting the GFS, which can result in the complete destruction of buildings as well as the loss of life,” the Fire Service stated.
