“Dear PoP,

I was running at about 7:00AM and saw at least half a dozen fire and emergency vehicles at the Safeway at 17th and Corcoran. Any idea what happened there?”

Twitter user @soupgirl sent word that she saw four fire trucks respond to the scene at 7am. No smoke or fire was visible though soupgirl writes that she “Saw one fireman on the roof of Safeway coming down the ladder. They had hooked the hoses up to a hydrant though”. Strangely I haven’t seen any reports from @fireems. I called the store for confirmation and they said that they “can’t go into details but the store is now open.”

Thanks again to soupgirl for sending the info. I can be followed on twitter @PoPville here.
