when in doubt, blame the squatters
Yeah, right: the lawyer for a landlord of a warehouse complex in Brooklyn implies that squatters might have caused the city's biggest fire in a decade, Newsday reports. The fire, just a few blocks from my home, essentially destroyed the seven-building complex, which was rezoned a few months back to allow fancy residential towers.
Meanwhile, the Mayor says the spread and pattern of the fire suggests that an accelerant might have been used.
What's a little arson among friends?
