Arroyo Grande Boy Scout’s building destroyed by fire

May 1, 2011

Firefighters are investigating a fire that destroyed the Boy Scouts of America Buildings in Arroyo Grande earlier today.

Multiple units from the Five Cities Fire Authority responded to the fire at 490 East Cherry Avenue at about 4:20 a.m.

Firefighters arrived to find the two main buildings fully engulfed in flames. While no one was injured, the fire totally destroyed both buildings.

In addition, an historic truck on loan to the Boy Scouts was severely damaged.

Two neighboring residents were evacuated as a precaution. Both structures sustained only minor damage from the heat of the blaze

An Arroyo Grande Police department arson investigator is working to determine what caused the fire.

Wonder if this will be investigated as a hate crime?
