Scuba club fire called suspicious
Staff Writer, Chambersburg
WILLIAMSON, Pa. - Investigators believe a fire early Monday at a new scuba diving club may have been set to cover up a burglary.
A wooden structure used as an office and classrooms was destroyed in the 4:18 a.m. fire at the Williamson Scuba Club at a quarry off Pa. 995 between Chambersburg, Pa., and Greencastle, Pa., said Tom Bigler, chief of St. Thomas Township Fire and Rescue Company.
Teaching materials such as books, a television and videocassette recorder, a slide projector, and a computer and printer were in the destroyed building, although it's unknown if the contents were removed by the thieves before the building was set on fire, said Ed Vymazal, of Shippensburg, Pa., owner of the business and a diving instructor.
