Man found burned to death after Cancun palapa fire

Cancun, Q.R. — Firemen responding to the report of a palapa fire made the grim discovery of a dead man inside. Early Wednesday morning, neighbors reported the house fire from SM 244 of Cancun.

Cancun firemen were able to extinguish the flames just before 2:00 a.m., but not before they consumed the entire modest wood and grass roof house. Once the fire was out, they were informed that a man was inside at the time.

Firemen sifted through the inside rubble where they located the body of a 37-year-old male who was trapped inside. The now deceased is reported to have been Carlos “J”, the brother-in-law of the homeowner.

A cause for the fire remains undetermined.
