Construction Site of New Condos Catches Fire

Posted By on Mon, Jun 18, 2012 at 8:29 AM


A construction site went up in flames early Saturday morning in the city's Hunters Point neighborhood in what appears to be a very suspicious fire.

Press reports say the blaze started at 4 a.m. at West Point and Middle Point roads, and firefighters had the fire under control by 5:30 a.m. According to our police sources, the site, which was being transformed from housing projects into new condos, was a total loss.

Officer Albie Esparza could not yet confirmed whether the fire was the product of fire-happy arsonists; however, it appears to be suspect.

We'll update you as we get more information.

  • 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.'"
