The San Pedro Fire Department is still investigating a fire that occurred late Saturday afternoon.

Arriving at the scene, they observed a prefabricated house, belonging to Medina’s Construction, engulfed in flames.
The building was completely destroyed but cost of building is still uncertain. While investigation is ongoing, quick response by the San Pedro Police Department led to the arrest of a male Hispanic person seen in the immediate area of the fire when it started.
