Alvin Pantry destroyed in fire

Posted on June 3rd, 2010 No Comments

A fire that destroyed a convenience store near Pearland, Texas, may have been intentional, authorities think.

The Brazoria County Fire Marshal told local news sources that he believed there was good reason to be suspicious of the fire’s circumstance. According to his statements, items that could have been used to burn down the store were located nearby, and evidence from the fire was promptly sent to the Pasadena arson lab.

The fire was reported to the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Department around 3 a.m. on Monday, as the Alvin Pantry convenience store located at the intersection of Texas 35 and CR 129. Reports indicated no injuries from the fire, although the building was destroyed.

The store had been in business for 16 years prior to the incident.

Fires like these that ruin businesses and leave workers and owners without an integral part of their livelihoods are avoidable disasters. An adequate and suitable fire prevention system can help to preserve property and save money and jobs in the process.
