A couple of weeks ago there was a vegetation fire reported alongside the railroad tracks near Castillo Street. As firefighters were putting it out they were told that a woman was walking along the tracks lighting fires, in all they put out 3 fires. The woman was described as having shoulder-length brown hair in her 20’s, a reader shared in the comments that there was a homeless female in another camp near the freeway around Carrillo, I think they said. Around that time was the first in many months was the southbound 101 at Fairview fire, it was put out. The next day on a Saturday there was another fire reported at the Fairview site. A possible rekindling or what? A neighbor reported to firefighters on that Saturday that they witnessed a female leaving the scene of the Saturday, fire she had brown hair, glasses, was in her 20’s and resembled a librarian. She was associated with a purple or blue car parked at McDonald’s. Last I heard she was walking between a laundromat and another building.
I’m wondering if any of these fires are suspicious in nature? Is there someone out there lighting these fires intentionally? Whether this is the case or not, many people have expressed concern about the overgrown brush along the freeway, the railroad tracks, and some of our roads. How come it is not being cleared out? I know some areas and camps are being cleaned up and it’s slow going, why not just hire a large group of temporary workers and give it a good clean out, there are many Folks out of work right now young and strong willing to social distance and work. I have questions, I hope someone has answers. In the old days this would not be an issue. When I first got here many years ago I remember much of the area being cleared and cleaned out once in a while. If we did not have so much brush there would be less of a chance of warming and cooking fires getting out of control also. Clearing these areas could save some taxpayers money, money that could be used housing the Homeless. HERE are YOUR SCANNER REPORTS.
