This rubble brought to you by the OPFD.

Wouldn't want to be the welder who caused it.

You mean it costs more than the $50000 the developer put in the relief fund ?

Anyone foolish enough to have a wood roof is asking to be a victim.

Edinburgh, Scotland, outlawed them @1650 as fire hazards.

Phil is right, you have to be a total moron to place a wood shingle roof on your house. Some folks have even go to colored metal roofs on there homes because they are safer yet.

a very short time after the fire started, I was contacted by several friends for my thoughts...as a former firefighter...KCFD many years ago, my response was...weekday, active worksite, late afternoon ...most likely a workman using a cutting torch or a welder...a typical cause for these types of incidents...the OPFD has determined it an "accident"...not so, it was "carelessness"...had that incident occurred on a military installation, there would surely be a General Courts Marshall...that type of operation requires a "Hot Work Permit" at industrial sites, two workmen, one with a fire extinguisher and a set procedure to perform the work and insure there are no "hot spots"...that careless workman just cost us..that's you and me, 25 million plus...
