Palm Island Resort to reopen Jan. 15

A small electrical generator fire on Dec. 24 forced the closure of Palm Island Resort in Florida, but officials have announced that the resort will reopen on Jan. 15. The generator fire resulted in a loss of electrical power on the island, but no injuries were reported and the fire was confined to the back-of-the-house generator area, away from guest accommodations. In-house guests were relocated to resorts on nearby islands, including St. Lucia and Barbados. Guests who were scheduled to arrive prior to Jan. 15 have been contacted and offered the opportunity to re-book for future dates. (
