Modest Cancun home completely devastated after early morning fire

Cancun, Q.R. — A family living in a modest home lost everything Friday after their house caught fire. Cancun emergency services were sent to the home in the Azul Bonampak subdivision of SM 247 after a 911 report.

Cancun firemen arrived shortly after 9:00 a.m. to find the inside of the concrete house engulfed in flames. Heat from the intense fire left windows exploded and a large crack near the top of the home, which broke building bricks all the way through.

The fire consumed everything inside the house.

After the fire was put out, firemen worked with Civil Protection who determined a short circuit to be the cause. There were no injuries reported. Authorities did not provide an estimate on damage.
