Residents of Roxanne Burnham Gardens were alarmed yesterday by a fire which scorched the fence of the New Guyana School at approximately 12:50 pm, according to a few bystanders.

A director of the private institution, who desired anonymity, told Stabroek News yesterday that the fire was set by someone in the community who was burning garbage indiscriminately on land close to the school.

“We were told that someone from the area was burning garbage indiscriminately at the opposite side of the school and the bushes were caught on fire, it eventually permeated towards several houses in the area but luckily no house was burnt,” the director told this newspaper.
