The investigation into the early morning fire at Pedro’s Hotel and Inn on May 23rd concluded to be arson. According to the San Pedro Fire Department, arson was the main suspicion because the area where the fire started shows it was started deliberately.

The probe led to the apprehension of a male individual for questioning. The suspect remained in custody, but police allegedly could not find enough evidence to tie him to the fire, and a few days later, he was released. There are no reports of anyone else arrested or held liable for setting fire to Pedro’s.
