Two persons are now homeless following a fire which completely destroyed a two-storey house at Lot 102 Section G, Nigg, Corentyne, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) on Monday evening.Flames were seen coming from the upper flat of the house about 20:30h. The couple were not at home since they reportedly departed for their vacation on Saturday.An eyewitness, who lives two houses away, Lucille Ayana explained that the community was at the time experiencing a fluctuation in the power supply. “Me light keep blinking, and then me neighbour get up to see what going on with he appliances and he see the fire and start holla and then me see the fire coming from the house,” the woman said.The fire spread quickly and engulfed the entire building, fuelled by combustible items which were in a storeroom, one resident reported.The Rose Hall Town Fire Service responded with one unit and was able to prevent the blaze from spreading to other buildings. At the time of the fire, there was a heavy rain which also contributed to the fire being contained to one building.When this publication visited the community, the affected couple had not returned from their vacation. The Fire Service is currently investigating the incident and has not confirmed that the fire was electrical in origin.
“I was just waiting for a reaction from somebody.” Ryan Getzlaf and Teemu Selanne scored for the Ducks in the shootout, and Paul Kariya scored for Nashville. Erat, attempting to send the shootout to a fourth round, beat Giguere high and to the glove side. The puck hit nothing but iron, however. Erat’s miss enabled the Pacific Division-leading Ducks to sneak away with a come-from-behind victory that extended their lead to eight points over the second-place Dallas Stars. Western Conference-leading Nashville was without Jason Arnott (flu-like symptoms), Peter Forsberg (upper body injury), Scott Hartnell (broken foot), David Legwand (upper body) and Steve Sullivan (back spasms). For the Ducks, second in the West, winning their first division title means avoiding a possible first-round playoff matchup against the Predators. For a while Sunday, it looked as if Giguere might cost them a game. He gave up questionable goals by Nashville’s Kimmo Timonen and J.P. Dumont and the Ducks faced a 2-0 deficit by the end of the first period. “The first goal was deflected, so it was a tough play,” Giguere said. “The second goal was a bad goal. Things will happen. We’re all human and we make mistakes.” Selanne scored on a breakaway 1:04 into the second period, George Parros earned a decision over Nashville’s Darcy Hordichuk in an entertaining fight 30 seconds later and the Ducks soon seized control of the game. Dustin Penner’s deflection of Chris Pronger’s shot from the left point tied the score at 2-all at 3:26 of the third period. firstname.lastname@example.org (310) 540-4201 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He had been bailed out again during the Ducks’ 3-2 shootout victory over the Nashville Predators on Sunday night at Honda Center. “I heard the puck hit the post, but I wasn’t sure if it was off the post and in or off the post and out,” Giguere said after Martin Erat’s shot in the third and final round of the shootout struck the right post and caromed away. ANAHEIM – Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere heard the puck clang off the goal post behind him, but wasn’t immediately sure whether that was a good or bad thing. Giguere then saw his teammates on the bench erupt in celebration. He heard the roar of a sellout crowd and finally raised his arms in a delayed reaction of joy and relief.
