By Aaron Humes: An early morning fire on Pescador Drive in San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye is said to have razed ten buildings including homes and business and caused as much as a million dollars in damage.

Around 12:45 this morning, police and fire officials responded to a wooden two-storey apartment behind El Durado Store on Pescador Drive which was on fire.

The fire spread quickly toward Lino Meat Shop and ultimately further up Pescador Drive and Black Coral Street, wiping out several houses, apartment buildings and business establishments.

Police and Fire officials are investigating the incident as possible arson.
