Management says damage not extensive, limited operations resumed Saturday
A fire of still unknown cause hit the Let’s Go Saipan warehouse in Lower Base late Thursday night. No one was injured in the blaze that, according to the company, happened after operations had ended for the day.
The Let’s Go management assured that it’s “business as usual” as regular tours and operations resumed Saturday, although in a limited capacity as they take some time to continue cleanup. Let’s Go is an extreme adventure tour company that offers all-terrain vehicle rides.
Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services spokesman Derek Gersonde said there was extensive damage inside and around the warehouse, including several ATVs.
Gersonde said that arson investigators were at the scene and would do their investigation when the heat settles down. DFEMS will provide more updates.
Let’s Go Tour Co., in a statement posted on its website, stated that the fire was localized to one area and that damage was not that extensive.
No employees or other personnel were present during the fire. The company’s operations were suspended only last Friday for cleanup and safety examinations.
“We would like to reassure our employees, customers, and partners that safety and security are always our top priority. We will continue to strive in delivering excellent service and provide memorable tours for all our customers,” the management said.
The management also thanked the community for their “well-wishes and show of support” and to DFEMS and its commissioner Claudio K. Norita, Department of Public Safety, and the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. for “their quick response.”
“We are truly grateful for their professionalism and swiftness in containing and putting out the fire,” the management said.
