A Second Fire

A Second Fire
Originally uploaded by djmermaid.
Those of you who've been reading me for a while may remember the time when I saved the building from burning down when the compost bin was on fire, in late June.

You may also remember my thwarted attempt at setting up my own compost bin (thwarted by the building manager, despite the fact that he has one that is totally overflowing and nasty) back in September.

Well, here's the latest. Yes, another fire in the wood chip area.

Someone put it out, but the point is that we have now had two fires in six months, in the demonstrably flammable wood chip area next to the building.

Furthermore, if a fire there ever happens to get out of control, *MY* unit will be the first to go up.

Needless to say, I am NOT happy about this. I want to talk to the landlord.

I am FED UP with this bullshit and I want to see those wood chips GONE before something even worse happens. They are a fire hazard, as well as a health hazard because they collect dog shit. I never go in there if I can help it, but clearly that's not enough.

I don't feel safe at home any more because of this and the buliding manager has not been responsive in the past, so I think it is time to take it to the owner.

Additional documentary photos are posted on Flickr.

See the jank with which we live!
