Early Morning SoMa Arsonist Targeted Only One Car, Another Just Unlucky

Posted By on Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 3:15 PM

After two cars went up in flames at 5:15 this morning on the 500 block of Jesse Street in SoMa, it seemed that the arsonist might have aimed for double the fun. Not so, says SFPD spokesman Samson Chan.

"The vehicle next to the black Nissan pickup didn't appear to be a target," Chan said. He didn't know exactly what kind of vehicle it was -- only that the flames from the pickup crept over and did damage.

The police have no suspects at this time, Chan said. They're

investigating how the fire may have started and whether it's related to

any of the other many, many San Francisco car fires over the past the

past year.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
