    Too bad about the fire, but maybe now we wont have dozens of illegal immigrants and criminals hanging out there during the day in broad daylight. 

    Furthermore, if RCIP wants to get a handle on crime, they need to take a drive up Crew Road between 12:00pm and 4:00pm for some reason this road is littered with men of all ages who obviously have no jobs and are not here legally as a result. They wander the road and are obviously looking for easy targets to burgle. Hate to profile in this way but its obvious what they are up to. XXXX

      Sorry to burst your bubble but the majority of people that I see there every morning are, like myself, born here of many generations.

    Sad for the loss of the house but very thankful that no one was inside and got hurt at the time of the fire.
