I lived there for a few years and The way the electrical system is on that property it was just a matter of time before something like this happened. Good thing it was not the house and only the tack room and part of the barn sooner or later if the electrical system is not fixed and El Cajon gets another rain storm could be more problems with the electrical system throughout the property.

My older brother works for the Montgomery Police Department in the Gaithersburg and Germantown areas and said that the ms-13, latinos, mexicans and the monguls are the most ruthless and most dangerous of the criminals and need to be hanged from a tree in the area of somalia or elsalvadore. He told me today that we need to get rid of Langley Park and the Riverdale latinos and sp--s from that area. He said that all dirt and trash should be treated as such. The ms-13, latinos and mexicans come here to rob and murder our elderly American residents and rape our American children, so the law should according to my police brother "fry all the foreign sp--s in the electric chair or suffocate them in the gas chamber" and that is a good coalition.

I have one horse at this stable and to rebuttal to the comment above, the place was built in the early '50's and most of the electrical wiring was within code from that period. If "Shawn" had contacted the people he would have found out the fire was due to rodents chewing the wires. The one blessing is all the animals that survived (9 other horses were in the stalls attached to the barn) are all doing well and none where hurt by the fire. Thank you firefighters, humane society, red cross and all the neighbors and friends for your assistance during this time.

I also have horses at this stable and thank AKS for setting the record straight. I was there in the early morning when this sadness accured. I would like to also thank everyone for their help.
