By BBN Staff: Just before 1 o’clock on Tuesday morning, there was a fire in San Jose, Toledo.
Police were called to Margarita’s Cool Spot where a thatched structure was engulfed in flames.
Police spoke to Margarita Coc who revealed that hours before the blaze she had locked up and secured the establishment and went to sleep in a nearby building.
However, she was awaken by her son who informed her of the blaze.
Fortunately, with the help of neighbors, the fire was brought under control and an adjoining building was preserved.
Investigators believe this fire was a case of arson as the structure did not have any electricity.
At this time, investigators have not yet identified any suspects.
