  •  Thank g*d for firefighters! 6 alarm fire near me. (5+ / 0-)

    Was awoken this a.m. by helicopter hovering over the neighborhood, covering a massive apartment fire down the street from me.  Saw the flames from my place.  Fortunately no fatalities.  
      What's really weird is this is second huge apt. complex fire on that street (within 1/2 mi.) in last 6 months.  Enough to make one think we have a fire bug in the area, but I think each was caused by just a fluke accidental ignition.

        many disabled tenants.  Not to mention it's in Silicon Valley, where housing prices have been skyrocketing more than ever.
