CONCORD — Hours after the city’s largest fire in years ripped through an apartment construction site Tuesday, residents who were evacuated from a downtown apartment complex next door still awaited word of when they could return home. ...

The fire ignited about 1 a.m. When crews arrived from a station two blocks away, they called for a third alarm immediately, McAlister said. The fire burned a 260-square-foot stretch of building that occupies 2.75 acres of property.

“Typically, we’d go first alarm, second alarm, third alarm,” McAlister said. “They encountered so much fire that they went straight to the third.”

Investigators said it’s far too early to determine whether the fire was intentional, and officials did not comment on reports that a person was seen near the blaze when it began. ...

“We have a housing shortage, and any number of houses that are lost will have an impact,” Birsan said. ...

ATF Special Agent in Charge Jill Snyder said, “It’s way too early to know if it was accidental or intentional,” and added that it’s “also way too early to know if it was related to other major construction fires that have happened in the area in the last several years.”

Yeah, we know one landlord who has most of his rentals right there, in Concord.

Well, he's got a motive. Keeping rents high.

That fire seems mighty suspicious. They should know by now where the fire started and wether it was intentional.
NIMBY's are getting out of hand.

Financed by taking advantage of poor people's ignorance of their legal credit debt rights and thus suckered into unnecessary filing for bankruptcy by said landlord's wife? THAT landlord?

There is plenty of shack stock to flip.

What else does anyone need?

Is it ecoterorrism or just insurance arson? The intent can make a world of difference in sentencing.

If these projects in suburban California didn't come with government mandated, subsidized Insta-Ghettos, they might have fewer objections. I love the crowds and the "ghetto face off stare" I get at my gas station now that one of the projects moved into my previously peaceful neighborhood. And as we know, those who receive these "temporary helping hands" are on them forever. Oddly enogh, the homeless and corner begging have come along for the ride.
