Two businesses destroyed by fire in Springlands


A fire that began at just around 9:15 hrs on Monday destroyed two long-standing businesses in Springlands, Corriverton, Region Six.

The fire reportedly began at an upholstery business owned by Mahendra Persaud, 54 of No.75 Village, Upper Corentyne Berbice. The blaze ravaged through his two-storey wooden structure before spreading to the Ritz Hotel and Restaurant located next door. The Ritz building is owned by Kamaldeo Othra, of Springlands. A section of the Ritz building is still standing.

The News Room was informed that at about 9:15 hrs on Monday, Persaud was sewing when he noticed smoke coming from his storeroom. He immediately alerted the fire service and the police; they both arrived on the scene shortly after.

An investigation is underway.

    No. 75 Village is now called “SPRINGLANDS” ? Since when and who changed it ?
    I lived in Springlands for many years and 75 village was always 75 village and nothing else but 75 village.
    Then, I read Minister Anthony- said the new hospital being built at 75 Village will be called SKELDON HOSPITAL ?
    There is already a decrepit Skeldon Hospital by the Skeldon Sugar Estate – this is the real Skeldon Hospital.
