New home for Coconut Leo

The San Pedro police and fire dept are investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed one building and left another one partially destroyed in the San Pedrito area. Reports are that a wooden building caught fire sometime around 11pm on Sunday, July 8th. The building was home to islander Coconut Leo who says he was not home at the time of the fire. He suspects that the fire was deliberately set. Coconut Leo is grateful for the kind neighbors and fire department who quickly put out the blaze and prevented it from spreading.

There are two houses on the property and the owner has housed many islanders in need throughout the years, and wishes to continue to help others.
