Golf Cart Shed fire investigation concluded – So what happened?

So if you click on this meeting you will notice this on the agenda;

Kearney shared updates pertaining to the recent fire at Elmwood Golf Course. The inspectors have concluded their investigation. The damaged area has been cleared, the new fencing is up, and the new carts are being stored in that location.

So I watched the meeting (in which I had to put the speaker to my ear because the audio was so bad) and when this came up on the agenda, Kearney never said what they concluded.

Why is it such a grand mystery the cause of a shed fire? It was either arson, accidental, electrical, etc. Why isn’t the Parks Department or SFFD sharing the details with the public? It was a taxpayer owned shed.

Things that make you go hmmm.

I have a theory:

It’s not that hard to understand. If you get new golf carts but can’t get budget for a new shelter, you burn the old one down and make it look like an accident so insurance pays.

I don’t think it was arson, that would just be idiocy. I think it was gross negligence by the new golf management employee. I think someone did something stupid and that is what caused the accidental fire. Because if it was due to weather, electrical or some other freak occurence, they would have told us already. I think someone f’ckd up and that is why they are not telling us what happened. Just my speculation.

Could it be the moved almost new shed was placed where someone actually wanted to put the new clubhouse?
