Fire marshal, arson unit investigate Safety Harbor warehouse blaze

SAFETY HARBOR — The investigation of a Sunday warehouse fire is expected to continue today, said Safety Harbor fire Chief Joe Accetta.

Crews contained a few remaining hot spots overnight in the 13,500-square-foot space at 601 Packard Court, allowing the city fire marshal and Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Arson Unit to sift through the remains.

Accetta would not speculate on the cause or whether there were signs of arson. The blaze caused nearly $1.5 million in damage.

Sheriff's deputies said the fire started at 11:21 p.m. at the Matrix Group Limited sporting goods warehouse and office building.

A firefighter taken to Mease Countryside Hospital with back injuries Sunday is fine, Accetta said.
