Emergency Shelter Being Moved For Homeless Victims Of Hotel Fire On Central Coast

Posted on Thursday, October 31, 2013 3:24pm

Some people who are still homeless in the wake of an arson fire at a hotel on the Central Coast this month are going to be shifting temporary addresses.

The City of Santa Maria, along with the Red Cross had set up a shelter at the city’s Minami Community Center for people displaced by the October 12th blaze at the Town Center Inn.

The fire caused an estimated $1.4 million dollars in damage to the hotel.

Part of the hotel has been repaired, and is reopening.

But, for those who are still displaced, the city is setting up another temporary shelter, at the Newlove Community Center in Santa Maria.

It won’t be a 24 hour a day shelter, but will be available temporarily for overnight use.

It’s still unclear how many of the approximately 100 people displaced by the fire will be returning to the residential hotel tomorrow.
