Palm Tree Fire on Rose Tonight

Irwin was on the scene when this palm tree on Rose caught fire a little while ago, apparently the result of illegal fireworks. Irwin and another neighbor were able to keep the flames from spreading, with a hose and a couple of fire extinguishers until the fire department arrived and doused it. No reports of damage other than to the tree, but an excellent reminder of what can happen as a result of amateur (and illegal in Los Angeles) pyrotechnics.

Reposting, as the LAPD has still not found Guillermo’s killer(s).

The LA City Council and the LAPD have put up a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or people responsible for the murder of Guillermo “Memo” Carmona-Perez.
