Preliminary findings indicate that a lightning strike was the probable trigger for the destructive fire that engulfed the Antigua Yacht Club Marina (AYCM) and adjacent businesses in Falmouth Harbour.
AYCM owner Carlo Falcone delivered this assessment during a Cabinet update prompted by the fire’s occurrence during Tropical Storm Philippe.
While the exact cost of the damage remains uncalculated, it is expected to be in the millions of dollars.
Falcone’s insurance company has dispatched an investigator to evaluate the losses.
The valiant efforts of the fire department in containing the blaze earned praise, considering the risks posed by lightning, high winds, and waves.
