Fire at Arenas Blancas

On Tuesday Nov 6th there was a fire at Arenas Blancas, the Hotel and everything related to Arenas Blancas is closed. Everyone was moved to Barcelo Solymar and Palma Real. After talking to many people it doesn't look like it will be opening soon. It was an electrical fire and no power which includes all bars dinning places and the pool..

If it was an electral fire then it is going to need all wires checked out, and that takes a lot of work .

Most electrical fires are caused by faulty old electrical outlets, we have all seen how many plugs they are trying to put into one outlet....lol. Spent some two hours with the electrical guy at one hotel around two thirty in the morning we finished installing the new outlets, and cutting the old wire out from the junction box....he had no tape, caps for the wires, just a old screwdriver...and this stuff is 220...lol...made for a interesting story in the morning to my wife.

I hope they did not try and put the fire out with water....first....yikes.
