City Firefighters

Professionals! You don't always get the credit you deserve. Another GOOD instance of City Employees, who are worth every penny. Professional . I am not related to any firefighters, not do I even know one, but I know that I can count on them when when I need them, as this household has done!

Keep it up, show that weisel who is running for City Council and trying to discredit the VALUE and worth of our City's staff that he can continue to operate in all of his "fringe" groups, but stay out of politics in our fair city.

I like how you can publish

I like how you can publish this without all the facts I am the homeowner and I met with the police investigator and fire dept investigator as late as 3:30 p.m. drugs/homelessness and people robbing and squatting on property is really the issue that probably caused this fire -- very unclear why this reporter did not try to gather all the facts and the belongings damaged and stolen totaled much more than your figures.
