According to Key Biscayne Beach Club manager Paul Zuccarini, at approximately 2 a.m. Key Biscayne Fire and Rescue were on the scene to put out a fire on four tiki-huts on the club's grounds which appeared to have intentionally been set on fire.

As of 8:45 a.m. Wednesday morning, KB Fire and Rescue was again back on the scene after being notified by Zuccarini who noticed some lingering flames on two of the tiki huts.

The VKB fire inspector was also on scene Wednesday to investigate.

Zuccarini said, “It is hard to fathom why someone would want to do this,” adding “hopefully the police will find them.”
