Fire in San Pedrito Area

Firefighters were fast to the scene of a fire that broke out on the second floor of a concrete building in the San Pedrito area at about 6:30p.m. on Thursday, January 28, 2010. With the assistance of neighbors and tenants of the first floor, the firefighters were quick to oust the fire before major damage was cause to the building. But although the fire was quickly put out, there is definite damage to the inside of the Cuellar family who reside on the second floor. According to unofficial reports, only the children of the Cuellar's were at home when the fire broke out. Both parents arrived at the scene shortly after the fire was extinguished. There are no injuries reported.

Cub Scouts Back in Action

Dear Ambergris Today,

Once more we had our Saturday activity and this time we went hiking, fishing and swimming. Our goal was to walk for four hours and to challenge the Cubs to walk as far as we can. We started at 6:30a.m. and finished at 10:30a.m. Our starting point was in front of the San Pedro Roman Catholic School and ended a little after Costa Maya Resort.

On the adventurous journey we had to stop three times for a five minute rest periods. When it was about to be 10:30a.m. the Cubs wanted to give up but Cub Scout Armando motivating them to continue. Finally we accomplished our goal. Mr. Lee Carstrom gave us the permission to stay on his dock and do some fishing. We all caught and clean our fishes.

Thanks to Mrs. Dora Santos who generously fried our fishes for us to eat and Mrs. Estevan Arroya who brought us back to Boca del Rio.

/s/ The Cub Scouts - Armando, Yasir, Michael, Emmanuel, Manuel and Shimar invite you to join the Cubs.

Golf Cart Goes up in Flames

One golf cart rental on the island finds itself short of one golf cart, as the San Pedro Fire Department reports that at about 1:50a.m. this morning a cart belonging to Island Adventures suddenly burst into flames in front of Grand Colony Island Villas, south of San Pedro Town. Fire Chief explains that the residents who rented the golf cart were caught by surprise when they noticed the cart seat getting warm. Upon making checks on the vehicle, it suddenly burst into flames. The fire completely consumed the golf cart reducing it to just its metal chassis; everything else, including the roof and body was burnt down to a pile of plastic goo. There were no reported injuries. - photos provided by uReporter Martin ZhiGang Ye.
