Well sorry to report that this morning I was awoken at about 2:00 AM to major flames and smoke as Seaside Cabana's and hotel as it burnt to the ground...sad...thank G-d there wasn't much of a wind so Sandbox, Habanero's and probably our whole village was spared. Fire truck on their job and then word that the new thatch down at the split as also ablazed and burnt down also. Busy night but thanks to the utmost high..no deaths or injuries. ZNuff love from rasta pasta

that is sad news, Maralyn, glad nobody was hurt, and the fire was contained. Seaside Cabanas looked like a very nice place, one I had hoped to stay at during a future visit. Was the thatch by the split somebody's private home? That is heartbreaking as well. Best wishes to all there.

From Lee of Cyber Caye Caulker:

Hi Marty.
I shot these photos from about 100 feet away, my rooftop last night, and
from the Vega property next door. These photos were taken after the fire was
under contro at about 3 a.m. The Caye Caulker fire department did a great
job once they were called. In addition Vega Inn, next door to Seaside used
their water system to assist the firefighters, so the fire didnt spread to
surrounding properties. We were in the wind path of the fire and had just
minor damage, burned screens, stuff like that. I spent the night at a
friends, because the smoke was too dangerous in my apartment. As of 9 a.m.
the fire was still smouldering.
=========================
a little while later...
=========

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

I feel badly for the owners of Seaside, but talk about a vacation to remember! those poor folks! what a frightening thing to go through. There could have easily been a tragic loss of lives. I hope they find the guilty party quickly.

Terrible loss for Caye Caulker.
I was there a few weeks ago and had a soft drink at the bar and the owner showed me the rooms. I loved the look & feel of Seaside Cabanas and had hoped to stay there on my next visit to Caulker. News said it was arson. Quite likely caused by envy & jelousy of others. These people were working hard to run a beautiful place, they should not have to go through this. Got to go I am pi..ed off!
