  1. Is this where there was a fire last month? Possibly set by the transients who lurk around there? Just wait until the weather gets warmer!

  2. Jesus….believe it or not, not everything that happens is the fault of transients. People who live in houses set fires too. A carelessly thrown out cigarette butt by a person who lives in a house starts fires too. Get off your high horse. No wonder the homeless people have such a hard time no matter what they do. And believe it or not, not all homeless people are careless and dirty. Do some research. Get to know a homeless person and/or family. Oh wait, you wouldn’t do THAT would you? They’re too beneath you, the dirty vagrants. Smh

  3. Dawns comment is not to far fetched,
    I was walking the trails back there last week and someone set fire to a few trees along the trail. Lots of clothes and garage in the area. And unfortunately lots of homeless along the tracks trying to keep warm at night. But it could have been kids or taxes payers BBQ?Or disgruntled ppl who have been misplaced and forgotten???? Glad no one’s was injured.
