Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

Fi­re­figh­ters on Mon­day rus­hed to the Han­no­ver­laan in Paramaribo to ex­tin­guish a hou­se fi­re. Fi­re De­part­ment Spo­kes­man Ol­ton Pi­nas told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me that the Fi­re De­part­ment Su­ri­na­me (KBS) re­cei­ved the call around 9:11. When fi­re­figh­ters ar­ri­ved at the lo­ca­ti­on they no­ti­ced that the hou­se was ma­de of sto­ne and wood. The ground floor whe­re a cou­ple li­ved was on fi­re. The first floor is re­por­ted­ly va­cant. The cou­ple was not ho­me at the ti­me of the fi­re. Pi­nas poin­ted out that it is sus­pec­ted that the fi­re star­ted in the li­ving room. A neigh­bor who was sit­ting in front of her hou­se no­ti­ced smo­ke co­ming from the hou­se and im­me­di­a­te­ly cal­l­ed the Fi­re De­part­ment. The hou­se had been in­su­red against fi­re. No­bo­dy was in­ju­red. Fi­re­figh­ters ma­na­ged to ta­ke 3 gas cy­lin­ders out of the burning hou­se. The ground floor was com­ple­te­ly de­st­roy­ed whi­le the first floor was slightly da­ma­ged by the fla­mes.
