Big Surf Waterpark sent out an email stating the water park will be closed on Monday, June 19, to fully assess the damage caused by the structural fire of a restroom facility.

Fortunately, and most importantly, no one was injured or harmed in the fire,"  Big Surf general manager Bob Pena said in the email. "We will be closed Monday to assess any further damage and to clean up and organize the park for Tuesday when we plan to be open for our guests to enjoy our water park."

The cause has not been determined and an investigation is underway.
