  1. Ok, that’s nice. Is there any news about the house that caught fire on Roberta Ave in the same week this occurred?

    • Unfortunately, the fire department does not have a public information officer right now, and no one let the paper know. If we don’t know we can not report on it.

    • That fire was due to the truck in the garage catching fire while the owner (an older man) was watching TV in his living room. The man got out safe (he’s seen in some of the videos) and his two dogs are also safe and in the care of a neighbor. It’s not clear what exactly caused the truck fire, but there’s been some recalls recently of a couple models for the exact reason of them catching fire spontaneously. This information is from local neighbors.
