The houses, one measuring approximately 12 feet by 16 feet and the other 20 feet by 22 feet were about 8 feet away from each other but on the same lot. The smaller house was owned by Jaime Tun, a  51 year old Belizean driver and  the other by Sandra Menenses, a 44 year old Belizean domestic. Initial investigation reveals that about 7:30pm Tuesday night, July 8,  Jaime Tun left his house to go to the Northern Border.  Sandra Menenses was in her house along with her seven children when about  9 pm they were awaken by the fire at Jaime Tun’s house. The fire managed to reach Menenses house as well. Fortunately, no one was injured, however, all household appliances and furniture of both houses were consumed by the fire. None of the houses were insured and the cost of the damages are not yet known.
