It was partly burned down when LeChuck delivered a lit birthday cake for Rapp, knowing that the cook had a habit of leaving his gas burner lit.
The resulting explosion killed Rapp and left his hut abandoned with the gas still on.
- As LeChuck describes the explosion that killed Rapp was so loud that it could been heard from Booty Island, would suggest that was a powerful one. Yet the hut were still intact and most of the stuff were whole and not even blackened by the explosion. Either this is a continuity error or that LeChuck simply were exaggerated the tale a bit.
