EUREKA- Arson is believed to be the cause of a blaze that engulfed an abandoned building on Broadway.

Humboldt Bay Fire Captain Ken Woods said a bystander saw a man fleeing the scene carrying a gas can. Woods said the Eureka Police Department is investigating the arson.

The East Bay Machine and Hydraulics building is abandoned and is a frequent place where transients to sleep. The building has caught fire multiple times before, most recently on April 30th.

Woods said no one was in the building at the time and that no one was injured.

The building is a total loss and knocked down neighboring power lines. The fire spread to a neighboring billboard and was extinguished. 

Later in the day, the building caught fire again in the afternoon around 1pm but was quickly put out by a single crew.
