4132 Cali fire: Ruins removed

A week and a half after the arson that destroyed the in-progress building @ 4132 Cali and forced nearby residents out of their homes, what was left of the charred ruins is now gone — driving to The Junction, we just noticed the demolition crew clearing the site (photo @ right is as close as we could pull over). Still no report of anyone under arrest; 800-55-ARSON if you have any tips that might help investigators.

    oooh, an empty lot on California Ave….I hope someone builds an ugly a$$ condo with a Starbucks on the main level!

    LOL A Starbucks would be ok, just no condo please :)

    Developers have insurance for these types of things. My landlord in Chicago had the same happen at a 3 flat he was renovating…it was delayed, but otherwise proceeded as planned.

    Here is a tip for investigators .. watch the property being developed just north of this arson site. It is on the east side of California across from 7-11.

Sorry, comment time is over.
