Fire in Albertsonís Shopping Center


January 7, 2017

BLYTHE, Calif Ė On Thursday, January 5 the Blythe Police Department received several 911 calls at about 6:32 A.M. regarding a commercial structure fire at 868 East Hobsonway (formerly Sweet Repeats). The commercial structure is located between Albertsonís and the former Rite Aid location.

The Blythe Fire Department responded and found the vacant commercial building engulfed in flames and smoking heavily. Albertsonís was evacuated for a short time due to fear that the fire may spread to the adjoining business.

Due to the suspicious nature of the fire, Blythe Police Department investigators were called to the scene and are currently investigating the cause of the fire.


Anyone with information regarding this case, or any other crime, is urged to contact Blythe Police Department at 922-6111, or they can give their information anonymously by calling Crime Stop at 921-CARE (2273) or by E-Mail.
