Fire Ravages Many Madhia Businesses


By Stabroek staff

In Guyana….

A fire suspected to be electrical in origin last evening reduced more than 20 structures in the commercial area of Mahdia in Region 8 to rubble, leaving behind millions of dollars in losses and dozens homeless.

Up to press time the inferno which started around 6:30 pm was said to be under control after it was contained by a corrugated zinc fence bordering an apartment complex.

The Government Information Agency last night said that Prime Minister Sam Hinds will travel to the area today.

Speaking to Stabroek News as the fire raged, a shaken and emotional Region Eight Chairman Senor Bell said via telephone from Mahdia that the “whole arcade in flame”.

He said that when he rushed to the area on hearing of the fire about 20 – 25 businesses were already gutted
