Fire in Pomona
Pardon my dust as I'm in the midst of reinventing the blog for a possible comeback, but I did want to open up the site in order to post this video taken by 15 year old Pomona resident Juan Cabrera, my newest contributor here on the blog. That's him sideways above.
According to some posts on the internet and an interview with the homeowner of the 2 Old Divas knitting shop/home on channel 4 last night, there is some controversy over how this fire was handled by the fire department. Mr. Henry complained that the firefighters refused to fight the fire when it was behind his house, which he was pleading for them to do. Mr. Hall said he had to helplessly watch as his home proceeded to catch on fire and burn. The other business affected (I'm still not sure how much) was The Garden, the first organic garden shop in L.A. County, but more importantly the Garden was part of the heart of Pomona. This is very sad.
