During the fire that consumed the West Oakland BART station early Thursday morning, Oakland police received reports of “suspicious people”.

The fire burned a four-story senior center, as well as the area surrounding the site, one street lamp and the headlights and rear-view mirror of a Toyota Camry on Fifth Street. Poor Toyota Camry, clearly it was the greatest sufferer in this morning’s blaze.

Oakland fire Battalion Chief Lisa Baker noted that there were reports of “suspicious people” around the area during the time the fire started. We’re not entirely sure what “suspicious people” look like. Further, who is up at 2 a.m. in the morning hanging around BART observing the so-called “suspicious people” around a melting construction site?

Moral of the story: if you’re at a BART early in the morning and there’s a fire, stop looking suspicious. Really. It won’t do you any good and you’ll be cited in news stories around the Bay.

A lot of companies selling these outfits at cheap price don’t perform this chemical processing. Hence, always pick a good store when you want to buy a leather motorcycle jacket.
