Oh no, poor rich people. What are they going to do?! I guess they'll just have to stay at that run down Ritz Carlton for a month. Here is some money so you can buy a new 100,000 car.

Although I do not care for the attitudes of well-to-do people, I would never wish losing a home for anyone.

Now, if it were done for insurance purposes, then thats a different story...

No body deserves to loose their home. We are all attached to what ever we have no matter how meger or excessive it may be. A lot of what was lost can not be replaced.
They may or may not be upperclass snobs, I tend to believe they are not, but they suffer just like you or I would.

How does the insurance thing work? I'm not well versed in that. Can you make money that way?

Whether people are rich or poor, a loss like this is devastating. My condolences to the Hunts - and I'm glad that you all got out safely.

Is that the home of the LA Daily News journalist who exposed the overtime abuses by the LAFD by chance?

VERY funny, Mess... but the DN "journalists" don't make enough to have that home if you put 10 of them together.

The only important part of the story is that the people in the house got out safely. Sadly, a fireman was injured and another sick doing a job that most of us (certainly me) are too afraid to handle. I'm sure it's traumatic losing a life's collection of memories, but in the end those are merely material things that pale in comparison to that of family and heath. Good luck.

Papee couldn't make the mortgage payments on the mansion anymore? Paid off the arson investigator? Wonder if the cute wife is in on "it".

Imagine if the first engine on scene had 3 firefighters in it. then a truck company with 4. When are more firefighters going to get there? oops, the next closest station was shut down due to lack of $ for constant staffing. Gonna be 15 more minutes guys! Cutting the LAFD budget hurts the taxpayers the most.

I live in an area with 3 person engine companies. Glad i have a hydrant right in front!
