The charred remains of 64-year-old Fizal Ally, also called ‘Zool’, were removed by coroners from the rubble at Lot 10 Bissoon Street, Better Hope South, ECD after his home went up in flames on Sunday at about noon.What remained of the house after the fireReportedly home alone at time of the blaze, Ally, who had shared the flat wooden house with his 54-year-old wife Anita Looknauth and her 15-year-old grandson Randy Ally, had reportedly been seen consuming alcohol earlier in the day.The couple’s neighbour noticed the house on fire at about noon, and raised an alarm. Neighbours formed a bucket brigade to attempt to put out the blaze, but were forced to retreat because of the intense heat. Within 15 minutes, the wooden structure had been reduced to rubble.As the fire continued to consume the remnants of the building, no one knew that the man was in the house. After the blaze had been extinguished, there was the gruesome discovery of Ally’s badly burnt body in a lying position. At no point in time did anyone hear any scream emanating from the house, and as such, everyone believe that the man might have slept through the ordeal on the floor of the house.Coroners removing what remained of Fizal’s bodyWhen Guyana Times arrived at the scene, residents stood in disbelief as the undertakers were removing the man’s remains. A woman who occupies a second house on the same property confirmed that the now dead man and his wife had been consuming alcohol earlier in the day. However, the wife left for work while the man stayed at home.This woman recalled sitting in her verandah and feeling a sudden heat. Giving details, she said, “Anyhow, I had this leatherette pulled down, which did not allow me to see what was happening over at them (victim) house. But the place start feeling unusually hot, so something tell me watch over”.As she looked out, she started to get weak after seeing the entire house engulfed in flames. “I start to tremble because I became so afraid; because me know the people them!” she cried. She told Guyana Times that she ran out of the yard and started to scream, “Fire!”“By the time everybody come out and started to try and out the fire, it was already long gone…but the heat was so much that I also had to run out of my house… We had to soak our house too, because of the heat,” she revealed.This neighbour thinks Fizal may have passed out due to being drunk, as she had heard no scream coming from the house.While the cause of the fire is yet to be determined, persons surmise that the fire might have been started by a kerosene stove that was left alight. Guyana Times has also been made to understand that whenever the man is drunk, he would threaten to burn down the house.The couple is said to have been living in the area for the past six years, since the owner of the property — sister to the now deceased — had built the house for him and his wife. The dead man’s sister reportedly resides overseas.It is unclear whether the deceased had been a father, but his wife is said to be a mother of one child.The man’s wife was escorted to the Police Station as an investigation was launched into the deadly fire.
1 Manchester United defender Luke Shaw is expected to have a second operation on his broken leg on Friday.Shaw was taken to the St Anna Ziekenhuis hospital on the outskirts of Eindhoven on Tuesday night after breaking his right leg in two places during United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV.The England left-back broke his tibia and fibula following a challenge by PSV defender Hector Moreno in the 15th minute.Two orthopaedic surgeons and a trauma specialist conducted an operation on Shaw’s leg on the night of the match.United declined to comment any further on the matter, but it is understood that Shaw will have a second operation at the Dutch hospital as part of his recovery on Friday.Shaw will remain in Eindhoven until United’s medical staff are happy for him to come home.United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward visited Shaw the morning after the match and the player’s parents are understood to be with him now.Shaw is said to have suffered a “clean break” of the right leg, which makes it more likely his recovery will be quicker.The player himself has not set a target for his comeback date, but Louis van Gaal said after the match that he could return by March.”I am not a doctor so I cannot say that, but when you have a double fracture it is I think until six months,” the United manager said.”It is about how it develops. You can never say that in advance.”He will not play in the group phase I think. I hope he can play again this season.”Former Coventry defender David Busst suffered a horrific leg break against United at Old Trafford in 1996 after colliding with Denis Irwin and Brian McClair and retired from the game a few months later.Busst needed 26 operations and contracted the MRSA virus but he is confident Shaw will make a full recovery.He told The Sun: ”It wasn’t the actual fractures that stopped me from playing, it was the infections.”But so long as it’s a clean break and there is no infection, there shouldn’t be a major issue for Luke.” Luke Shaw
