Two BPL engines damaged in Bimini fire
The fire, which started around 9 p.m. on Monday, was extinguished shortly after 3:30 a.m. today. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
“There [is] some damage inside the haul…,” Heastie said.
“The good news is we have the capacity on the island to carry the load that is currently on the island, and so we are just making safety checks to ensure that we can safely connect those customers back.
“We anticipate having everybody reconnected by 1 p.m.”
Power has already been restored to some areas.
Minister of Public Works Desmond Bannister said the fire will be investigated thoroughly and independently.
He apologized to the people of Bimini for the inconvenience.
