Early morning fire consumes two Tulum palapa topped roofs

Tulum, Q.R. — Authorities continue to look for the cause of a fire that consumed two Tulum palapas early Tuesday. Tulum firemen were called to help put out a fire on Kukucán Street that was spreading fast.

Wind gusts helped to fan the flames to a second grass and wood topped roof. Firemen were sent to the scene around 3:00 a.m. where the roofs of two buildings were fully engulfed. One of the buildings was empty. The second was used to store construction materials.
