The news of this jet ski that caught on fire in front of town slipped unnoticed through our news room and we guess that people forgot to inform us about it. But reports from our readers came in last week. Apparently the jet ski caught on fire at the rental dock in front of the Spindrift Hotel. Luckily the fire did not ignite the gas tank and there was no threat to the dock and the rental building on it. Nobody was hurt during the incident. The blaze was put out with another jet ski what was used to spray the burning vessel with water. The incident took place in September. See the video below.

In San Pedro, Belize, my dad and I were on vacation, and while eating lunch and waiting for the Island Ferry, one of the jetskiis on the nearby dock caught on fire. It wasn't being used and was only tied up on the dock. They pushed it out into the ocean so it wouldn't bun the dock and then I started recording.

That view sure seems familiar.... I'm betting the patio at Estel's. Am I right?

Pretty innovative way of fire fighting I must say.

God Bless The Reef!
