Fire guts DaSilva’s House of Optics

fire guts da silva's house of opticsFire fighters were called into action to put out the flames at Da Silva’s House of Optics on Sunday afternoon after a faulty air-conditioning unit caught fire and gutted the building.

A relative of the owners told the media that at the time of the fire, three persons were occupying the building.

As fire fighters managed to contain the blaze relatives and other citizens gained access and removed two motorcycles, a car and several pieces of articles from the lower flat of the building.

The building, which has significant historical value, was made out of pitch pine and was said to be one of the oldest wooden buildings around. This is according to city engineer Lloyd Alleyne a close friend of the family.

Fire Chief Marlon Gentle was on the scene and he told the media the task of the fire-fighters was to contain the flames from spreading to any of the nearby buildings.

The fire at one stage threatened a section of the Georgetown hospital, but according to residents the efforts of the Guyana Fire Service must be commended.

    added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment
    is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?

    Thank you!
