it looked like most of, if not all, brick row is gone - are there additional homes on fire? and what about those behind them?

That crime rate remark was uncalled for. There were good people that lived there too.
Cause was arson.

so far they've only booked Billy Gill

I live close enough to feel the heat from the flames last night and to have my home smell like smoke today. I know that Brick Row has a reputation and I'm sure that at least some of the people who lived there did/sold drugs, however I doubt that everyone did.

To make such an ignorant statement that "the crime rate is already falling" shows how heartless you are. I'd expand further on that but obviously you're not someone who cares.
