  • A construction related fire? The contractors working there look pretty shady

  • They are not contractors, just people I presume the owners got to board up the place tonight. The ownership of the house is a bit unclear. It was being lived in by a lot of unsavory people who were finally evicted a month or so ago. The house was then boarded up. Some of the guys came back today and broke in. The next-door neighbor (who has been doing yeoman’s work for months trying to keep the place from turning into an outright slum) called the police. Police did not show up for some time. Then the house was on fire.

  • In other news, the traffic on the 1300 block of Irving is exactly how it is everyday
