The cause of the Belize Aquaculture Limited Fire remains a mystery

There was a fire at the Belize Aquaculture Limited (BAL) shrimp farm which is 4 miles along the Placencia Road. The Monday inferno damaged the processing plant. Joseph Myvett, the Head of the National Crimes Investigation Branch says that the cause of the fire is still being investigated.

ACP Joseph Myvett: “The Belize Aquaculture Limited on the Placencia Road which on Monday sometime around 5:10 PM Independence Police was called to the scene of a fire at the Belize Aquaculture Limited on the Placencia Road where upon arrival the building was seen engulfed in flames. Initial Police investigation revealed that sometime after 4 PM an employee of the company saw smoke coming from the main building which ended up completely destroyed by fire. At this time the cause of the fire is still yet unknown as fire personnel is still on the scene trying to determine the cause and Police investigation into this matter is on going. At this time also the damages have not yet been ascertained either and neither does the Police know whether or not the contents of the building was insured.”

The company is remaining tight-lipped about the amount of ammonia and chlorine which the fire department is still assessing. The company did send a press release stating  “The positive is that the hatchery and infrastructure including farms themselves are not affected so the production schedule planned to start in February will still go ahead as planned and shrimp can be grown.”
