Gator Update

WFTV.com - News - Firefighters Called To Blaze At Gatorland In Orlando: "ORLANDO, Fla. -- The fire is nearly out at Gatorland in Orlando.

Orange County emergency officials got a report shortly before dawn of smoke and flames at the 110-acre theme park and preserve. A spokeswoman said the fire seemed to be in a building that houses administrative offices and a gift shop.

The building is at the front of the park and does not appear to be a threat to the reptiles.

No injuries have been reported.

The cause of the fire is not yet known. Gatorland will be closed Monday."

I heard a small gator and two pythons died in the fire.

I heard about this on the news this morning I immediately thought of you, who must be inconsolable. It's like the sacking of Rome.
