Bush fire warnings

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Last night just before sun down, the South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch (SACNW) patrol alerted the San Pedro Fire Department of a bush fire that had started in the vicinity of the WASA pond. Immediately, fire personnel were dispatched to the area and by 8:00 p.m. the fire had been completely extinguished. Members of SACNW on the scene complained that the fire began where old thatch had been dumped on the side of the road. A couple weeks ago SACNW had carried out a clean up campaign. Shortly after, members found someone dumping trash on the side of the road. This same old thatch was what caught fire. It is unknown how the fire started and who the culprit(s) were.

We’ll have more on this story in next weeks issue of The Sun!
