BURN, BABY, BURN: More fires under mayor’s watch
BRIDGEPORT—Two more mobile homes burned to the ground last week, one on September 26, in the city of Bridgeport, and residents are talking about how odd the whole thing was.
Neighbors report that at about 9 p.m. that night, an abandoned trailer in the center of town ‘erupted’ in flames. The fire department was called out to respond. Fortunately, the neighbor reported, things were wet from the torrential downpours the area had just experienced.
The neighbor shot a couple of photos; I’ve adjusted them a little so you can see some of what’s going on in the darkness.
Neighbors reported that as the trailer had been abandoned for some time (at least three years), it was highly unlikely there was any electricity running to the place, so an electrical fire would thus be ruled out.
However, since it seems there are those within the circle of Bridgeport mayor Mad Max Schauf’s who are…obsessed…with fire, and since the trailer was considered an eyesore and folks are always getting onto Schauf about “cleaning up the town”…well, draw your own conclusions.
The neighbors advised that Danny K. Ash, one of Lawrence’s loser deputies who used to be a Bridgeport cop but is now the county’s “K9 handler,” showed up at the Sept. 26 fire, unnecessarily or so it seemed. He is reported to have looked around at the scene and how it was being handled, & then moving right along & likely back to his own Bridgeport abode.
Reportedly, the fires in Bridgeport continued at some point after Sept. 26, with another trailer burning to the ground, but we’ve yet to find any credible information about that. We’ll be asking around prior to the next print version, which we’re working on this week, and which, whether there’s fire coverage or not, is sure to be a SCORCHER, as the largest part of the front page of this one is already laid out and has been for months. We’re finally getting to report on something that’s been on hold for a long time, and you won’t be disappointed…be sure to get your renews in by check or money order if you’re sending them in through the mail, or by PayPal here at the site if you don’t mind paying a little extra for the convenience…and of course our e-Edition memberships are available any time.
