    I was wondering about the butterfly farm. The smoke alone can't be good for those fragile things.
    I do hope they get it out quickly!

    Thanks, Lizzardo, for the translated report. We can always count on you about many inquiries for answers.

    We just came home late Monday night (May 24), and could see the heavy black smoke from Palm Beach. Our traxi driver who drove us to the airport, said it was started in two places and was "done by some bad people". As we got closer to the area the fire was in, there was another grass fire burning right beside the road in an area that just has vegetation. Too bad, no matter how it was started.

    Mick went by the butterfly farm yesterday and it looked fine. The side on the highway looks very bad. You can only see the damage on the highway side.

    Fire dept said a day or so ago was just trying to put out the fire and then would look into how. I really doubt if it was caused by a cigarette or something careless anything will come of it.

    I was in Aruba at the time of the fire and saw the flames and smoke from my 3rd floor room at the la cabana. I spoke to some of the locals and they said it was arson. The fire was burning for 2 days. It was big.
