Fire destroys Pescadero buildings and is a major loss to the community.

“The fire which ravaged the landmark building on Stage Road in Pescadero in the early morning hours of January 11 destroyed not only Sarabia’s garage, On Stage Video, and Rita’s hair salon, but also put the Pescadero Thrift Shop, operated by South Coast Children’s Services, out of business … The fire was huge. Fortunately, it was a still night; if it had been windy, the whole town could have gone. We had volunteer firemen here from Loma Mar and La Honda, the CDF from Pescadero and Skylonda, and the Half Moon ay Fire Department … The fire fighters refused at first for safety reasons to allow the Saraibas in the burning building to save their brand new tow truck, but they did manage to get it out, with blistered paint and melted lights,” said Karen Enlow then co-manager of the thrift shop.
The Pescadero Thrift Shop is now located at 2041 Pescadero Road, Sarabia’s Auto Repair and Towing is at 216 Stage Road in Pescadero.
