Republic1954. Joe and Rebecca are close friends of mine and they are good people. If you know them so well then it would be easy to figure out who I am. Your comments show that you don't know them at all.

There is not a word of what you are saying that is true. I stood and held pieces of the stove assisting the fire investigator (not chief) while he took pictures. What I have relayed here is precisely what he told me personally at the scene as they were wrapping up there onsite investigation at 3 pm on Wednesday.

Obviously I don't care whether or not you believe me. I won't be responding to anymore of your lies; it's a waste of time. Feel free to continue to spew your venom and show people what kind of person you are.

To those of you who want to blame the owner you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about and you should be ashamed of yourselves. The owner Joe Abraham lived in that building himself weekdays so that he was always available for his tenants. How many true "slumlords" can say that. The building wasn't perfect by any means but it was home for 30 some people who otherwise might not have a home at all. The heating system was working fine and Mr. Abraham made many improvements including adding balconies so that people would have a place to enjoy the summer outside.
Unfortunately tragedies like this bring out the best and the worst in our human nature. Which of those attributes describes you? If you want to blame Mr. Abraham then I assume you are willing to provide a home for someone who lived at the old Curlew School.
Before you saint Joe Abraham, remember that those people paid him to stay there...it was not out of the goodness of his heart. He provided them a home, but only because he was paid.

grewupinrepublic - This isn't a matter of sainthood. This is a matter of defending a good friend who has been unfairly accused of things that are simply not true by people don't know what they're talking about and who bring nothing to the table. Are you operating a non-profit low income apartment? Are you offering these people a place to stay? I have lived in this community for 25 years and there are some great people here. Are you one of them?

What about the studio/closet rooms that didn't even have a window to escape out of? Is that up to code?

I'm 14 years old and I have more info about this then most people, because I'm dating the grandmothers son Matt who is 17, he had a hard time when this happen just like a lot of us people have, but when this happend he was in Spokane so hheee....Idk he just had a hard time with it....Be4 he was with me he would sleep all day and stay up all night just so he could stay away from people around him, the only person he ever talked to was his half sis who is one of my best friends and is older then him by 4 months (lol they both have a lot of half bro and sis). I'm now getting him to come out in to town to meat new people, and make some new friends. People would come up to me and ask who he was and where he came from. Alot of people thought he was dead becausse he was supposed to be with his mother and sis and her 2 babys at the time with the fire.... But anyways afew weeks ago the mother (Matts sis) just got back home she looks good and seems to be taking it well. :)
