A special general meeting is set for Sunday where sugar cane farmers are to decide on whether they will sign the commercial agreement with ASR/BSI. In the forefront of the fight is Belize Sugar cane farmers association CEO Oscar Alonzo.
However on Friday morning, Mr Alonzo had to turn his attention to other matters as his rental property was on fire. No one was at the property at the time of the fire this morning and fire officials are determining the cause of the blaze.
Reports are that a family barbecue was taking place in the yard when it was noticed that a fire was inside the house, which belongs to Ofelia Can. The fire spread rapidly inside the house but fire fighters managed to contain the blaze from spreading to neighbouring structures. Those images were courtesy West Vision.
