Bush fire behind old Marriott

A bush fire that has been burning since at least mid-morning Tuesday was still going late into the night. 

There were no clues as to what started the fire behind the now-empty Courtyard Marriott hotel property on West Bay Road. 

As night fell Tuesday, flames could clearly be seen through the bush about 25 feet from the Esterley Tibbetts Highway on the back side of the old hotel property. 

Cayman Islands Fire Service crews were on scene throughout the day keeping an eye on the blaze and making sure it didn’t spread out of control.
