Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

A car that was par­ked along the Schnei­der-Ho­ward­straat in Paramaribo cau­ght fi­re on Sa­tur­day.

Fi­re De­part­ment spo­kes­man Ol­ton Pi­nas told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me that a gray car was par­ked next to a ga­ra­ge. The re­si­dents had ar­ri­ved ho­me in the car about a quar­ter be­fo­re the fi­re star­ted. The son of the wo­man of the hou­se re­por­ted­ly saw fla­mes co­ming from the car and no­ti­fied his mo­ther and the other hou­se­ma­tes. The mo­ther im­me­di­a­te­ly no­ti­fied the po­li­ce and brought her 80-year-old fa­ther and other hou­se­ma­tes to sa­fe­ty. She had ta­ken a few fi­re sa­fe­ty ses­si­ons at work and had the­re­fo­re pur­cha­sed two fi­re ex­tin­guis­hers which she and the other pe­o­p­le used to pro­tect the gas cy­lin­ders that we­re lo­ca­ted next to the burning car. The wo­man has car in­su­ran­ce.

Pi­nas said that the fi­re de­st­roy­ed the en­gi­ne and the two front seats. The heat al­so de­st­roy­ed the front win­dow whi­le the back seat has wa­ter da­ma­ge. The­re are re­por­ted­ly se­cu­ri­ty ca­me­ras on the pre­mi­ses. The in­ves­ti­ga­tors will look at the se­cu­ri­ty foot­a­ge to de­ter­mi­ne the cau­se of the fi­re.
