The staff of the lodging center indicated that they worked in the control of the flames with the support of workers from other buildings in the area, while the emergency bodies arrived, in accordance with their internal operation program.
Juan Carlos Medina, head of Civil Protection of Tulum, pointed out that 22 fire extinguishers and two thousand liters of water were used from a pipe of the hotel owned by Roberto Palazuelos Badeaux, who was in the lodging center when the lightning struck, but fortunately there were no people injured, only material losses.
For its part, the fire department, under the command of director Oscar Pérez Ortigoza, put down the fire and verified that it did not represent a risk for the other palapas.
