UPDATE #2 Turns out the fire was a big deal. It cost $1 million worth of damage to the building and its contents, which included racing fuel. The fuel didn’t ignite. More in Wednesday’s Argus.
UPDATE: The fire is out. No biggie.
It’s at a strip mall at Grimmer and Industrial. Our cops guy is heading out there. I’m here preparing the paper’s annual year in review two-part spectacular, and talking to blue star moms. They want to start a Fremont branch, and I want to have a story for this very slow week.
Last year, I met a bunch of blue star moms and their pals at a homecoming for a soldier who was coming home from Iraq. The only one I remembered is this woman. Her name is Roberta Allen and her contact lenses would make the perfect finishing touch to any Captain America costume.
