Enterprise Bridge

Now THAT'S a FIRE!

A condo development in downtown Escondido burned to the ground yesterday afternoon. The black smoke plume was so thick and so tall it could be seen from Interstate 5, 20 miles away. From the angle it was at relative to my office, I thought perhaps a plane had crashed on approach to Palomar Airport. Parts of the complex were still burning this morning.

From witness descriptions of how fast this fire spread, I really don't have any doubt that this was arson. ATF is investigating.
