Fire destroys Camacho warehouse in Honduras

camfire

In a very unfortunate event, a warehouse owned by Camacho Cigars in Danli, Honduras caught fire on Monday morning. The damage caused by the fire was quite significant in terms of product loss. Luckily, there were no casualties to report.

Christian Eiroa, Camacho's president, stated that the actual cause of the fire was unknown. However, he did speculate that the fire could have been caused by some of the warehouse's neighbors that were burning garbage at the time. He stated that a piece of the burning garbage may have reached the warehouse's roof and set fire to the structure.

Though the lack of human casualties was fortunate, much of the tobacco contained within the warehouse had no such luck. Several bales of Ecuadorian Connecticut Seed wrappers were destroyed when they caught fire. Even wrappers that were not burned are useless, since they absorbed the odors produced by the fire's smoke. While the possible cause of the Camacho warehouse fire could be considered a freak accident, fires in cigar warehouses and factories are not exactly uncommon due to aging tobacco's propensity to burn with ease.

To counter such risk of fire, Eiroa claims that Camacho spreads its product amongst various warehouses, five of which exist in the Danli area. Despite the fire, Camacho plans to continue production without any major interruption. The destroyed Ecuadorian Connecticut Seed wrappers are brand's priciest, and they are used to produce such Camacho selections as the El LegendArio Connecticut, Baccarat, La Fontana, and more.
