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. 
Information courtesy of San Pedro Sun newspaper. The property is not owned by Leo, he has resided there for many years rent free. The owner plans to rebuild so Coconut Leo can come back. 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.

We did not raise enough to build Leo a new home. We Are using the money we raised so far to fix the damage to the main house. David has moved on and Coconut Leo is in the main house. We aren't completely finished yet, he has no toilet or running water, we weren't able to replace the window on the wall that burned, and he needs some basic furniture. I cant thank you enough for your kind donations and with a little more help he should be real comfortable in his new home.

Coconut Leo is very grateful for your support. He had the biggest smile when I told him. We have decided a Mennonite home would be the quickest and most economical way to rebuild. If we are able to raise the funds needed. Thank you very much for your generous donations.
