Taken by Allison up on the hill

The fire burned 1/2 of the Palapa over Raual's restaurant. Many people
got buckets filled them in the ocean and assisted in putting out the fire.
There were propane tanks adding to the danger of the work. Requena's billiards bar
was due to open Saturday, really a set back for him. Emergency services showed
up about 1/2 hour after it was all over.

After things cooled down people voluntarily helped remove the old and
burned palapas from the restaurant, Requena's billiards bar next door and clean
it up. It was wonderful to see the community come to their assistance.

Here is Ulysses, Requena and a couple other workers starting the long road
to getting the pool bar back like it was before the fire. It is a wonder that the
propane tank on the roof next door did not blow up, you can see how hot the
fire was by the condition of the water tank!

Help them how ever you can.
