Typical double talk in Fitchburg! One way for the citizens and another for the connected.

Mayor Wong has dropped the ball on leadership at crucial points. This fire, the Longsjo race and on accountability of city employees.
Really? The Mayor spent thousands of dollars for the fire department to provide escorts (firefighters) for each resident to enter their unit and retrieve their articles within a given time frame.

Now I have never seen that happen with other fires in multi-family buildings. Why did these residents get special treatment?

As for the Longsjo race it went on as usual. I talked to the cyclists and the race will never be considered a major race anymore because communities on the West Coast have long stretches of canyon coastline roads that are better suited for racing.

Going around in a small circle for a bike race is now antiquated in the road racing cycling world. The Longsjo race was originally started and intended for local amateur wannabe cycling residents for local fun.

For a period it became a professional event but as bicycles evolved and distance and speeds increased it is not safe for the riders. It will never be the "Tour de Fitchburg".

The problem is many residents have never attended a professional cycling event on the West Coast or Upstate NY so they will never understand.

There was no asbestos? Then why did the State Department of Public Health immediately list it as a hazard and asbestos removal was started ASAP after the fire?

Well you better tell the resident's who spent alot of money having their items cleaned after they removed them from the building. Actually if you knew there wasn't any asbestos you will be responsible for reimbursing them for their cleaning of their belongings!

Look up the asbestos removal work order from the Mass DEP dumbass!

You do realize they filled the inside of the building with clean backfill up to the 3rd floor so the bulldozers had a foundation under them? You do know that right?

Awe, don't be mad because you were wrong. It's okay little bear. But please stop baking drama cakes. I just called some of the former tenants and they want that information from you stating that Clark made up the story about asbestos.

That information and your statement will help their case tremendously.

You will post your contact information? Actually you are going to post your contact information here:

The smoke hasn't gotten to the smoke alarms yet. When you are cooking and burn food don't you smell it before the smoke detectors activate? I bet you do........wink.

The fire may have been in the ceiling or the walls. The smoke hasn't risen yet to the smoke detectors located in the attic.

Let me guess, you are not a rocket scientist?

You do realize that most fires go undetected for many minutes and even hours until enough smoke is generated to activate a smoke detector. The fire at the time was too small to activate a detector but that doesn't mean you cannot smell it.

Remember this was a large building so smoke will need some time to find a detector. Smoke detectors are only installed in required areas by code. They are NOT installed every few feet from each other. Smoke may have to travel 50 feet or more to the closest smoke detector in a building that large.

Here is an idea, light a piece of paper in a pan and extinguish it. Ask someone to enter your house and ask them if they smell anything. I bet they can smell smoke but I bet your detectors did not activate.

I have a feeling you are a renter and not a home owner or else you would know a little more about fires.

I checked and you didn't post your information on facebook? You are not one of those people who are bored, on welfare and have nothing else to do but to make stipulations based on your own ideas are you?

Are you a drama queen?

It was so small it didn't set off the smoke detector. But within 15 min after going off the whole top of the building was sending flames 100 feet in the air. Sorry I am not a not a rocket scientist?

And what does that mean? Remember only one smoke detector is required in an open attic space. The building was 100 ft. in length and Clark's condo was located at the farthest corner. He had a corner unit. The smoke detector was located in the center of the attic. 50 ft. or more away.

Very astute of you. An apartment building burned down and you have come to the conclusion that people with questions are renters and not home owners. I like that.
