Police are searching for two people who burned a part of Key West’s famous Southernmost Point buoy early New Year’s Day after setting a fire near the landmark tourism icon.
News outlets report two males lit a Christmas tree on fire in front of the buoy around 3:30 a.m. Saturday and the flames charred sections of the colorful, 4-ton cement monument that reads “90 miles to Cuba, Southernmost Point, Continental U.S.A.”
Archival webcam images of the buoy from a marketing company shows two people lighting the tree on fire near the marker, with the flames leaving a large black burn mark on the monument.

It was more scorched than burned.
Idea: Paint it brown, put big ears on the sides, and an ugly sculpted face of Saint George Floyd and add a sign:
Southernmost point. Last chance to kneel before the idol George Floyd before Cuba.
Charge Dems to have their picture taken there. Corporate CEOs can have framed pictures for their executive suites behind their chairs.
First to say, “That’ll buff right out.”
Yada yada yada those aren’t buoys!
I agree. They are He/Hims.
I was just talking about that thing yesterday, suggesting AOC should go down there and scream at the 90 miles of ocean toward Cuba
When I was down there, I was amazed how long the line was to take a picture beside that marker
I just drove on by. After I had to stop and wait for a 4 foot iguana to cross the road
To satisfy my curiosity, I looked this up on Google Maps. It’s actually not the southernmost point. That would be about a quarter mile down the beach. Google even has a pin there showing “Actual Southernmost Point”.
1. The farthest South
2. The farthest North
3. The farthest East
4. The farthest West
Did you just assume gender?🤔
Last I heard concrete doesn’t burn.
Hawaii, Alaska, Alaska, Hawaii.
Concrete may not burn, but paint does.
During the Trump administration, people said “Merry Christmas” again. Under Biden it’s back to … happy holidays…. and even burning public Christmas trees.
Not actually a buoy but it supposedly marks the southernmost point in mainland US and a big tourist attraction. Be curious who the sick nutcases were that would even consider doing something like this. Can’t imagine there is a political angle here?
Yeah, it won’t burn and doesn’t float. With the traffic that thing gets it has to be concrete, steel, or maybe indestructrium to survive. I expect someone has a set of stencils to keep it spiffed up from the wet foot-dry foot traffic?
