A homeless encampment caught fire Monday under the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway and burned for nearly four hours before being extinguished.
Motorists, who noticed smoke emanating from underneath the eastbound lanes, reported the fire at around 5:30 a.m., Los Angeles City Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.
"The fire underneath the bridge on the 210 freeway included mattresses and other personal belongings," Humphrey said, adding that there were no injuries.
Firefighters crawled under the bridge and eventually extinguished the flames, Humphrey said.
Caltrans engineers were on the scene to determine if the bridge suffered any structural damage, but it did not appear the structure was compromised, Humphrey said.
I am copying the above and sending an e-mail to CD2. And we all know that a homeless man is the #1 suspect in the Station Fire, don't we? I really do not know what it will take for them to take the problem of the homeless in our mountains and neighborhoods seriously enough to take care of the problem. Two precious fire fighters died in the Station Fire and destroyed our beloved Angeles National Forest and our lungs.
