    Fire, fire...

    The bird sanctuary in front of Divi Phoenix is under the fire. It started last night at 11:00 and is still going on.

    We had a pretty rainless rainy season but that is still a marshy area but I'm sure it's dryer than usual

    Here are some pics

    Let's hope that everything is under control now. What a shame!

    Does anyone know if this is under control now? I sure hope so.
    It didn't effect the hotel did it?

    here is the translated story from the amigoe:

    Large fire nature Bubali Plas
    The Butterfly Farm was evacuated this morning in connection with a fire in the nature of the Bubali Plas. The fire was discovered around noon and has, helped by the wind, since spread over large parts of the Park. The smoke and stench of the area including the hotel zone, not that bad. The bulk of the smoke goes toward the sea between the Westin hotel and the hotel by Divi Phoenix. The road dropped off by the police.
