A well-known bakery in Buxton, East Coast Demerara was destroyed by fire early Monday morning, leaving the owner in shock and over 30 persons unemployed.
Many persons were in tears when the Guyana Chronicle visited the scene as they stared in disbelief at what used to be ‘Benjamin’s Bakery’.
One distraught employee explained that she received a call at around 1:00hrs from one of her relatives who lives nearby that the bakery was on fire.
“I am not sure what caused the fire but when I was there the building was already in flames so all I could do was call over some of the neighbours to help me throw some water before the fire service arrived,” said the employee.
Although the fire service responded quickly, almost everything was lost, the employee said, while pointing out that the building was under construction and was expected to be completed at the end of March.
The bakery’s equipment and construction materials were destroyed in the fire, leaving the owner, Wesley Benjamin to account for millions of dollars in losses. The cause of the fire is not yet known as the fire service continues to investigate.
