Blaze levels icon attraction in Las Terrenas
Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic.- Sixteen businesses were reduced to ashes because of the fire that this Saturday devoured the Pueblo de Pescadores tourist area in Las Terrenas, northeastern Samaná province.
The original buildings were destroyed by a fire in 2012 and rebuilt. According to many neighbors, the fire could have been set intentionally.
Two other establishments were affected, Fire Department official, Carlos Santos, told Diario Libre.
The Pueblo de Pescadores, located on the beach, offered varied gastronomy and was an important source of jobs for the municipality.
