PSA. This is not a sweeping generalization or meant to be an offensive comment. However, I have noticed that there a quite a few stores in the nabe that are dirty, cluttered, not necessarily up to code. So it doesn’t surprise me at all that if a fire broke out it would torch up the place. Sad though. Sorry for the people who lost a biz.


Way too many stores over there are fire hazards. I guess it will take a major incident for the city to take some action.
