(Damage reports greatly exaggerated)…The Holtville fire Sunday completely destroyed one business.
It was the 99-cent store. Other damage reports, however, were not accurate. George’s Pizza did not suffer much damage from the 7:00 pm fire. The Tax Service office and the Pharmacy on 5th Street were also spared serious damage. The investigation into the cause of the blaze is currently underway. Arson investigators were reportedly on scene to determine if the fire was intentionally set. Fortunately no injuries resulted from the three-alarm fire.
