During the intense rain that hit Progreso on the afternoon of Sunday, June 16, a fire broke out in one of the busiest tourist areas of this place, Pig Beach (Playa Cerditos).

The incident went viral through a video on social media, however, the cause of the incident was unknown. Later, authorities informed that it all started because during the rain an electricity cable came into contact with a tree, which caused a large short circuit. The fire did not cause any major inconvenience.

On Monday, June 17, the Progreso City Council ruled on the matter to indicate that operations at the site will continue as normal starting Tuesday, since this Monday, the site will not open to the public.

Through a statement, the head of the Ecological Police Unit, Obdulio Mena Sánchez confirmed that everything was due to the fall of a high-tension cable on a tree.

Elements of the Ecological Police that take care of the tourist area acted immediately, protecting the site and evicting visitors. They also requested support from the firefighters and the Municipal Police.

Mena Sánchez emphasized that both the staff and the piglets housed in the place were well and were not affected, nor were the facilities.
