A fire of unknown origin destroyed the house of pensioner Agnes Wills of One Mile, Wismar Linden on Monday at around 15:30hrs.
According to reports, the owner is residing overseas and left the house in the care of Rudolph Wills, a family member.
Wills noted that he locked up the house and went to his neighbour’s yard which is about 30 meters away. While there, he saw smoke emanating from the north western side of the house followed by fire.
He quickly ran over, but, the western side of the house was engulfed in flames. The fire was ravaging throughout the home.
The fire was contained and subsequently fully extinguished by the Guyana Fire Service.
Investigation in progress.
