On Saturday evening, April 27th at approximately 8PM Jetís Bar, located at Belizeís Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport was destroyed by what appears to be an electrical fire.
Anyone who has traveled through Belizeís international airport is most likely familiar with the legendary bar. The half-pint gravel-voiced Mr. Jet is always there to greet you, squeeze the girls and quench your thirst with a rum punch or ice cold Belikin while awaiting your flight. The bar had all of the charm of local watering-holes in Belize, with a few bar stools, walls papered with old photos, posters, memorabilia and of course plenty of bar-room banter. Reports are that no one was harmed in the fire and that Mr. Jet intends to rebuild the bar as soon as possible.
