A BUILDING that was used to train cadet officers for the Guyana Defence Force at Maria’s Lodge in Region Two was completely burnt early Tuesday morning.
The building was unoccupied at the time of the fire. It is alleged that an arsonist gained entry from a back window and used kerosene to set the building on fire. Neighbours noticed the smoke and immediately called the Anna Regina Fire Station where firefighters responded. They managed to extinguish the fire but by then the interior of the building was already gutted. An investigation is currently ongoing.
