Guyana: Fire guts dorm in Karasabai Village

A fire has destroyed another dormitory in Guyana, this time at the St Angela Girl’s Hostel in Karasabai Village.  

The Guyana Fire and Rescue Service says the report was received at approximately 4 am. 

It states: “At this time, we can confirm that everyone was evacuated from the building, and no one was injured. However, the building and its contents were destroyed. 

Investigations are ongoing.” 

Fire Service officials, accompanied by the police, the Minister of Home Affairs, Robeson Benn, the Minister of Education, Priya Manickchand, and other officials, are headed to Karasabai Village in Region 9 to carry out investigations and engage residents following the early morning fire.  

The Department of Public Information (DPI), in an earlier statement, also noted that a whole team of technical officials and a cabinet member are en route to Karasabai, Region Nine, where a dormitory was destroyed by fire. 

President Dr Irfaan Ali spoke with the Regional Executive Officer (REO), who informed that the fire occurred this morning 

The REO has reported that everyone is safe.  

This latest fire comes on the heels of the Mahdia Secondary School dormitory fire, which claimed the lives of 20 children.  

A teenage girl has since appeared in court on multiple murder charges after being accused of setting that fire.
