As one of the resorts that our company represents we are all saddened by the tragic news of the devastating fire, but happy that none of our friends were hurt. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all at Seaside Cabanas

From Lee of Cyber Caye Caulker:

Total loss, only one partial wall remains. The fire inspectors are here
investigating. Definitely arson. Here are the pics again. The fire is still
smoldering, 14 hours later, they shoot water on it from time to time. They
found the safe in the office and were cutting it open to get their
customer's passports for them. 5 rooms were occupied.

here's a few photos

Now that I look at the pictures I realize this is where we stopped a week ago today for a cold drink. Irm wasn't feeling well and we came to the beautiful bar to get out of the sun for awhile. I took a bunch of pictures because I thought it was so pretty there. One of the nicer spots on CC. What a tremendous loss. Does anyone know if the amazon parrot in the bar (I think his name is Buddy) made it out okay? Best wishes to the owners in rebuilding. mobunny

No one wanted to be the messenger. No, Buddy did not make it out alive.

No arrests have been made. I find it uncanny that I live on an island were nothing goes unnoticed, everything get a commment, (including your hairstyle), yet no one saw anything.
