The San Pedro Police and Fire Departments were called to the scene of a fire at the Boca del Rio Park last night at 12a.m. on Wednesday, October 16, 2012, where they came across one of the beach palapas engulfed in flames. Firefighters immediately extinguished the blaze that almost completely destroyed the structure. The fire did not pose any threat to other structures as it was in an open area of the park by the beach. Police suspect arson as the palapa has no running electrical wires that can spark a fire and investigations into the matter continue.
