Fire destroys hillside in French Cul de Sac

POSTED: 03/9/11 11:39 AM


St. Maarten – An early morning fire that kept going well into yesterday afternoon destroyed all vegetation on a hillside overlooking Pinel Island and Orient Bay. The fire started before seven o’clock, most likely on the garbage dump that is located on the other side of the hill.
The French-side fire department was at the scene, but did not make any attempts to extinguish the flames. One fire truck was parked near a building at the bottom of the hill, preparing to fight the approaching fire if necessary to protect the building.
