House on 24th and Bartlett catches fire; Traffic lady confused

I awoke this morning to a fresh roasting smell of smoke and as i wondered up Bartlett to 24th there was about 4 fire engines and 2 fire wardens breathing a sigh of relief after putting out a significant fire on 24th. I think it was the apartments behind that fire truck on the right in the picture as there was quite a lot of debris in front of the house. The streets were all closed and loads of people were watching the action.

Most entertaining was the look of the traffic lady’s face who seemed completely bewildered about how to do her job (a look she normally reserves for people who never pay attention to her…which is all the time).

Anyway, be sure to check you have your own fire extinguisher at home (class A B C) this Xmas. We wouldn’t want another fire in the Microhood.

  1. It _was_ that building. And it was Scary! 4:30 am sirens blaring up the street. I woke up to them and smoke was billowing, sparks were flying, and the wind was NOT helping. Stay safe, everyone!

  2. Danielle….. You should have got a pic or even a video from your roof. Could have been your first Microhood blog post? 😉
