Default So much for Banana Daiquiris in St. Thomas -

Fire hits Virgin Islands' `home of the banana daiquiri'
Associated Press
CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands -- U.S. Virgin Islands authorities say a blaze has gutted a popular tourist attraction touted as the home of the banana daiquiri.

Fire Chief Glen Francis says the 60-year-old Mountain Top souvenir shop and tavern was reduced to rubble early Tuesday on the island of St. Thomas.

Francis says the Mountain Top was already engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived and it took crews four hours to douse the wind-whipped blaze.

The tavern 1,547 feet above sea level, is recommended in Caribbean guide books as a place to buy knickknacks and down banana cocktails while taking in views of outlying islands.

Investigators would not speculate on what caused the fire.
