Second Fire of 2015 on Exotic Caye Resort Property

Earlier this year, the southern portion of Exotic Caye Resort started fire in the laundry room and spread to a number of rooms in the early morning hours.  (See story from February 2015.)  Thankfully no one was hurt.

At about 2pm today, the property recently acquired by the company and expanded by a sizeable sea wall – also caught fire.  And the partially wooden house quickly went up in flames.

Here is a photo of the house in September.

I arrived just as the fire trucks did.

From the north side of the home – I was told that it is currently unoccupied.

And then from the west side.

The San Pedro Fire Department quickly went to work…

And the fire was quickly put out.  THANK GOODNESS.   Thank goodness also for the good-sized space between this home and the bar, Crazy Canuck’s and the restaurant above it.  Staff was preparing to wet the buildings- but the fire was put out quickly.

As I walked home, I spotted the burned buildings from February’s fire.
