We didn’t start the fire

No we don’t think anyone’s accusing us of arson, we just like making Billy Joel references [1].

Yet another fire broke out [2] this morning at a west Berkeley art gallery, causes not yet known. A few people were dislodged, and a couple firemen were mildly injured – not by the fire but my a resident dog. Not only was it a dog, but it was a Chihuahua. Named Chuco. So the fire wasn’t exactly fatal, and pales in comparison to the Haste/Telegraph fire last fall [3]. But after that fire, the one at Great China [4] and now this one, we are starting to get frustrated. Why does Berkeley insist on being so flammable?

Not to sound like an after school special, but be safe kids! Berkeley buildings are old, weather can be dry and crazy things happen. Like our old pal Smokey [5], we urge you to be cautious in fire prevention, and when around spunky Chihuahuas named Chuco (we only assume he was spunky because he turned on firefighters).
