Ten persons are now homeless as a result of two fires.
Fire Chief, Marlon Gentle says at about 3am on Saturday, firefighters responded to a call at Bent Street, Wortmanville, where a two-storey wooden house was ablaze.
No one was injured, but eight persons were left homeless.
Mr Gentle says investigators believe the fire was deliberately set by an occupant during a disagreement.
In the second fire at Haslington Village, East Coast Demerara, a house was destroyed, leaving two persons homeless. There were no injuries.
Firefighters were told that one of the occupants left a kerosene stove alight and went to bed.
