Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire

Five-alarm fire in Mission Bay – SFGate

Firefighters were battling a five-alarm fire in San Francisco’s Mission Bay on Tuesday afternoon.

The fire broke out in a large, multistory apartment building under construction on Fourth Street near China Basin Street at 4:56 p.m., according to the Fire Department.

Flames shot through the roof of the building and 40 feet into the air, creating a huge cloud of smoke that was visible for several miles.

I pass by this building a couple of times a day – it’s on my bike route to the Mission Bay campus, and it’s on my way home from the dog park where the Presidential Pomeranian has his daily play date.

I came by here today probably ten minutes before the fire broke out.  My first thought was arson by disgruntled hipster douchebags, but the thing is under constructions, and workers are all over the place, so probably not.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
