By Aaron Humes : The San Pedro Fire Department (SPFD) and the Police Department are investigating a fire that occurred on Friday afternoon shortly after 2PM. According to the San Pedro Sun the Fire Service on the island was notified about a fire engulfing an abandoned building on the beach adjacent to Crazy Canucks beach sports bar by Coconut Drive.
When they arrived at the scene, they observed a two story building belonging to Exotic Caye Beach Resort, engulfed in flames.
The top floor of the building, made of wood, was completely destroyed along with other materials such as furniture that were stored in the abandoned structure.
Firefighters quickly put the fire under control and stopped it from spreading to the nearby buildings. The building did not have electricity, which raises suspicions as to what caused the fire in the first place.
No casualties were reported in the fire, as the house has been empty for quite some time. Both the Police and the Fire Department continue their investigation.
