When I rented I had renters insurance. And for my personal valuables, especially an expensive watch, I had a rider to cover that. So, yes, you can cover personal valuables with insurance. You just need to be willing to pay for te coverage. Think of it as flood insurance. Not standard with a typical homeowner policy but available as an option.

Consider this education free of charge.

The Straights insisted you check the box on your rental agreement that you would get renter's insurance. If you owned your condo, your mortgage company insisted on you having insurance, as well. Did you get it like you promised you would? Did you have enough? Well, that's a personal choice. I understand the sentimental value of your books and jewelry, but that goes with any fire. You lost your stuff whether it was consumed by the fire or water damage caused by the fire. Where else can this go - what could you possibly hope to get?

We lost our first home in a fire when I was small. It was confusing for a while, then we got on with our lives. One thing that it taught me and what really matters - it's just stuff and you can always get more stuff. There was no loss of life.

Don't understand how the jewelry came up missing three days after the fire. Who was the only one allowed in the building??

Answer: The Straights

Explain That..........

You're forgetting that the firefighters were in the building too. They should be on your suspect list as well.

With all of the homeless drug addicts living under the bridge there is a good chance that a yellow plastic police tape wouldn't deter them from sneaking in. Where normal people see tragedy criminals see opportunity for stuff to steal.

No the firefighters took pics of all the rooms and the jewelry was there. It only disappeared after Clark closed the building and had cops posted outside to protect the building from people going in expect the owner and his family.

They didn't take pics of all the rooms, they only took video of the Professor's corner unit because he requested it.

I guess some people have a bad memory, Brett Crawford (Fitchburg Sentinel reporter/photographer) took interior photos and and some of the photos have been posted online since the fire.

And also to refresh everyone's memory. There were multiple agencies in the building after the fire before the tenants were allowed in and these are just a FEW of them:

City's Building Engineers.

City's Electrical Inspector.

A team of Mass DEP technicians.

Verizon/Comcast Technicians, Remember most of Main Street lost phone and internet service. The main phone/internet line was routed thru the basement.

The engineers from the cleanup contractor surveying the building.

Insurance agents.

State Police.

Most people do not realize that the State Police are in charge and do the fire investigations. If the FFD fire prevention bureau/investigation cannot determine a cause the State Police take over the investigation. The Johnsonia investigation results came from the STATE POLICE!

Sorry all these agencies were in there before the tenants could enter. Do you really think they just allow the tenants in with doing the fire investigation and surveying the safety of the building first?

So how would the tenants know if anything was stolen?

Again the city should have an open forum question session in an auditorium once a month to answer any questions the general public has.

But just the response here tells me it would be a waste of time because people will never understand how things are done and the reasons for it.

Some people can never accept an answer no matter what it is.

I can also see why the city should not have an open forum. In this case any information should only be for the tenants directly and not the general public.

The State Police were in the building before anyone was allowed to rule out any criminal act that may have been associated with fire. THIS PREVENTS ANYONE TO ENTER THAT COULD TO TAMPER WITH ANY EVIDENCE IF THERE IS EVIDENCE.

The State Police go through everything.

Where was the heaviest charring?(This is the origin of the fire).

The circuit breaker panels (possible electrical fire/overload).

Missing personal items that would usually be in a person's home (family photos, empty closets of clothes, computers, pets, medications) this is a sign of a person removing their non-replaceable items before starting a fire especially if they state they were not at home at the time of the fire!

Most MAJOR fires are automatically investigated by the State Police which arrive on scene as soon as the fire is extinguished to preserve evidence and prevent disrupting the scene any further.
