Perhaps by the French power plant. https://www.sxmislandcam.com/

Looks to be a big warehouse. Fire much bigger than it was.

[Event in progress: fire in a hangar at Galisbay Harbor]
A fire broke out in a cold storage shed on the commercial port of Galisbay. The smoke goes out to sea. Rescue and fire services and law enforcement are mobilized for a quick return to normal. The President of the Collectivity of Saint-Martin and the prefect are on site.
Evacuation in progress.
A security perimeter is set up. Accommodations near the event are being evacuated.
Port access blocked.
Access to the Galisbay commercial port is blocked to traffic. Ships are prohibited from sailing in
the area.
Support of the Dutch part of the island.
The Dutch Government has made available to Saint-Martin 1 truck and a team of 6 firefighters.
Thank you all for avoiding the port area of ​​Galisbay
to allow the services to intervene in the best conditions.
Do not spread false information.
