Firefighters in Caye Caulker Village began fighting a house fire at around five o'clock this evening. The two-storey wooden structure belonging to Tina Auxillou was named Chateau Giselle, located near the village's basketball court. The fire equipment on the island ran out of water and tourists and residents formed a bucket brigade.

Residents of Caye Caulker frantically tried to stop the spread of a fire that consumed 2 buildings on front street in the village. The homes are located across from the central park, and were (occupied) rentals. The fire service tried battling the flames, and residents had to join in with the ever-reliable bucket brigade.

As of 6PM, witnesses claim the fire is under control. No injuries were reported.




No one was hurt, one building was destroyed, and the fire has been contained.

Arson suspected after fire engulfs apartment building in Caye Caulker

According to eyewitnesses, the fire spread north-ward from a small wooden structure near the apartment building's fence. A shack that was known to be used as a storeroom. The San Pedro Sun was informed that no one was reportedly living in the aforementioned small structure, and neither was it connected to any power lines. The mystery of the incident has authorities baffled, and they are looking at the possibility that the blaze was intentionally caused. However, Benisford Matura, Operation Officer of the Fire Department in Belize City briefly stated that the cause is yet to be confirmed and that officers from the City will be assisting in the investigation.

As investigations continue, interested parties desiring to assist the fire victims can contact Lee Vanderwalker at Caribbean Colours at 605-9242. Donations can also be made via Paypal to the account [email protected] .
