Fire at Turtle Inn Resort in Placencia under investigation

Posted: Wednesday, November 10, 2021. 10:08 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Police in Placencia, Stann Creek District, have opened their investigation into this morning’s fire at the Turtle Inn Resort on the Placencia Peninsula.

The cops responded around 10:43 a.m. and found a wooden building with a thatch roof used as the resort kitchen, which was engulfed in flames. Fire personnel were already on scene and quickly extinguished the fire.

Preliminary assessment from the lead firefighter, Thomas Moreira, is that the fire originated from the kitchen chimney that caused the metal supporting the thatch roof to overheat and spark the fire.

According to the Police, Manager Martin Krediet reported that he was informed by his staff about the fire and that the resort, a Coppola Family Property, was insured with RFG Insurance.

No one was injured during the incident and the cost of damages to the building has not yet been determined.
