Firefighters Extinguish Brush Fires and A House Fire
Between April 1st and 24th there have been two forest fires in mainland Isla Mujeres, near Francisco May, which destroyed 6.5 hectares of brush, said the director of Civil Protection. Gabriel Sulu Martinez. On the island they have extinguished small fires in vacant lots, in addition to the housefire of senora Rudelia Osorio Castilla, which was caused by a candle setting fire to a stuffed teddy bear. Agricultural burning is strictly prohibited during the dry season of April and May. The director explained that the penalties range from a verbal warning to a fine between 100 and 1000 daily minimum wages (about five dollars per day), and with recidivism the fines can double to 200 to 2000 daily minimum wages.

Woman Injured In Taxi-Scooter Accident
There was an accident between a Honda Wave motorcycle with a woman and child aboard and a taxi on main street, Rueda Medina, near the OXXO store. It occurred at 7am and the child was not injured, but the woman, Fatima Delgado, 29, lost consciousness when she fell, and was taken by the Red Cross to the General Hospital, and later transferred to Cancun for further evaluation. The taxi was driven by Francisco Baeza Herrera, 52, known as El Bolitas, who was making a U turn.  According to the police report, the woman was not keeping a safe distance and hit the left rear area of the taxi with the front of her motorcycle. Apparently the impact was not great, and there was  a mark on the cab tire and the vehicles were not seriously damaged. Both of the vehicles were taken to the police impound yard, awaiting an agreement between those involved in the accident. There were different opinions among the witnesses. Some said the woman was clearly at fault for not slowing down, while others said that the taxi driver turned unexpectedly, causing the impact. Source Por Esto 

 Tots Enjoy Family Day At Beach
The kindergarten & preschool students of the school Gabriela Mistral enjoyed a morning with their parents of fun activities including games, quizzes, and songs on the Posada beach.The teachers organized the activity to focus on family life, because some parent spend so much time working that they have little opportunity for interactions like this. Some mothers brought snacks and mother Manuela Pech commented about how nice it was to have the opportunity for her husband to play with his son, because he is always at work when the child is home and awake. The activity started promptly at 9am and concluded at noon. The sun was at its peak and everyone got a chance to take a "chapuzón” (dip). Source: Diario Respuesta/Jesus Molina
