Fire at Blau Colonial !!!!!!!!!

There was a huge fire at the Ranch rest. by the salt water pool last night and destroyed the resturant and has closed the pool as well.

It seems like they may have to close the resort because of the pool as I believe it was the only one open.

Good news is I have not heard of any injuries yet.

That's really bad news Lenny. Any idea what caused the fire? I would guess it would have started in the kitchen.

Let's hope that no one was hurt. Please keep us posted.

I think my info is a little off with the name of the resturant cause I believe the Ranch is by the beach but I'll confirm tomorrow. I would imagine it was a kitchen fire but it was a short message I got and I sent back questions too late for today so I'll update when I get more news.

So I just heard from my buddy and no workers or guests were hurt and they are moving people to other resorts as the fresh water pool was being repaired and now the salt water pool is out of commission. Not good for the workers at all , hopefully the pool is not too bad and can be repaired as fast as Cuban time allows !

Good to hear that no one was hurt. Buildings and pools can be repaired or replaced. Human life can not.

Lenny: Wasn't the salt water pool out of order for a long time?

Ya it was reopened a few months ago and was great. Now they were doing the fresh water pool and then this happens.
