Subject: [Tweeters] Fill on fire Date: Jul 29 19:35:57 2009 From: Connie Sidles - constancesidles at gmail.com
Hey tweets, some very bad news to report. The Fill is on fire. I don't have too many details at the moment, but the police I talked to out there said the fire started around 6 p.m. From what little I can tell (not being allowed on the site yet), the fire may have started down at East Point, near the same place where it caught fire a few years ago. That earlier fire was started by kids with fireworks. This one, I don't know yet. The fire fighters are still out there trying to deal with hot spots, but it looks like most of the fire is out. One fire fighter was injured - don't know how badly.
I'm going to head out there again in a few minutes and see if I can get a look from the shellhouse. I hope no one else was hurt - there were homeless people sleeping there this morning, and cigarette butts on the trails. - Connie
