CD vendor burnt beyond recognition

By Sue-Ann Wayow

A 39-YEAR-OLD man lost his life and all his possessions in a fire yesterday.

Up to late yesterday evening, fire officers were still investigating the cause of the fire that killed Glen Ramkissoon a CD vendor.

Ena Ramkissoon said her brother’s body was burnt beyond recognition. 

She said around 4.30 p.m., neighbours saw fire coming from Ramkissoon’s wooden home at Southern Main Road, Claxton Bay. They attempted to get him out the house, but the door was locked. The Chaguanas Police Station was contacted and police officers soon arrived at the scene.

By the time fire officers and the police arrived, it was too late to save Ramkissoon.

Ena Ramkissoon said her younger brother lived alone, had no children and was not married.

She said he lived a simple life having little material things. She said police were not sure whether the fire was deliberately set or if it was an accident.

Officers from Chaguanas Police Station are continuing investigations.
