A sum of $1000.00 was handed on Monday by Earl Trapp Junior, the Mayor of San Ignacio and Santa Elena to victims of a recent fire in Santa Elena Town. The Mayor is extending a heartfelt thanks to all who came out to support a Bar-B-Q fundraiser which was held for the fire victims on Saturday. Mayor Trapp is especially thanking all staff members who assisted, such as Mrs. Claudette Trapp, Councilor Bernadette Fernandez and the Deputy Mayor.

Members of the Belize Fire Department entered a burning two storey concrete building by the NEL’s tortilla factory on George Price Highway at about two pm on March 22nd, saving it and an adjacent building from being destroyed. However; the first wooden building that had caught fire was completely destroyed, leaving an entire family without shelter.
