Holbox hotel’s electrical inspected after report of restaurant fire

Holbox, Q.R. — A small fire inside a Holbox hotel had fire crews on scene Sunday. The late night smolder was put out by hotel staff before fire crews arrived.

Jesús Alejandro Erosa Betancourt, head of the Holbox Fire Brigade, confirmed the report of a fire in the restaurant area of the hotel’s kitchen Sunday night. He said that they were still looking into the reason for the fire, which did not spread or become a major event.

Civil Protection personnel also arrived for an electrical inspection. At the time of reporting, a cause for the fire had not yet been reported.

In November of 2022, Governor Mara Lezama announced a fire station would be built for the island of Holbox.
