I was reading the LAFD blog. I like it, and I wish that I lived in a town that had a police blotter published. But I digress.
Yesterday morning there was an apartment building fire in the Civic Center/Bunker Hill area. Though the fire was put out without injuries, no one could go back into the building right away. So the LAFD called for an MTA bus to shelter the 115 occupants until other accomodations could be made.
I’d never thought about it before, but calling up a bus to get people out of the damp morning air and possibly transport them to a Red Cross shelter is a pretty cool idea.
