Residents of the Inn at Summerwind Resort’s eastern tower evacuated around 4 p.m. Nov. 19 due to a roof fire, visible from the beach below.
The blaze broke out on the northeastern corner of the roof sending a pillar of smoke over the beach. Petra Francis of Navarre Properties, whose office is located in the tower, said work crews have been making repairs to the roof area after Hurricane Sally caused damage in September.
Deteriorated properties along canals in Santa Rosa County need to shape up if a new proposed ordinance is adopted.
County commissioners gave the thumbs-up to advertise a public hearing on a new canal ordinance. The proposed ordinance will require docks, piers, boathouses and seawalls along man-made canals in the county to be maintained so as not to be a hazard to the public or navigation and to not damage neighboring property.
In August, Santa Rosa County Commissioners unanimously approved expanding the nuisance noise ordinance to protect Navarre Beach.
So, when a car alarm started going off repeatedly after 9 p.m. along Gulf Boulevard, residents of the beach called the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office to enforce the new county law.
