A fire doesn’t start itself. Who started it? The “homeless?” This has to stop!

Noticed they’ve already started moving back into Buchanan encampment. Two transients on Buchanan last Friday night when i was driving home were seriously out of it and dangerous. Glad I didn’t live in any houses by Buchanan and Railroad, that dude just looked like a zombie staring into space. Then you get up close to Harbor and there’s another one just as creepy looking.
