Firefighters Battle 15 Acre Vegetation Fire Near Marina Started by Homeless

by ECT

At 3:24 am, Contra Costa County Fire was dispatched to a report of a vegetation fire near the Antioch Marina along the railroad tracks.

Crews were able to work to limit the vegetation fire to approximately 15-acres after the fire was started by homeless. The incident also burned through a power pole which if it goes down, would cause a large power outage in the city. It also creates a life safety issue for firefighters on scene — PG&E is on scene.

As of 8:00 am, crews had the fire under control and were working to clean up the area while Crew 12 will be on scene most of the day creating a fire break and mop up duties.

When will we finally have ENOUGH OF THIS CRAP and kick those homeless out of his city? Fifteen acres is a lot of land! Those people are not even from California but were sent him from other states too cheap to take care of their OWN people. STOP WASTING OUR TAX DOLLARS ON THESE PEOPLE! Round them up and put them on buses heading east already!

Very tired of homeless starting fires, particularly in these drought conditions. Depressing and selfish.

Either put these people on buses and have them return to their home states OR put them on boats and deposit them *(with their tents and gear) on the islands in the middle of the river …. drop off food for them with a chopper. Let them fend for themselves! They are putting our population in danger and their bathroom habits will bring us diseases! Most of them aren’t even from California and we should not be forced to take care of them while their home states go scot free!
