Yes, a fire

I walked around the block on my way to work and yes, it was a fire. The building owner was out front taking pictures and she explained how someone had put out a loveseat for trash pickup, and she'd asked that they bring it up against the building (large item pickup isn't til Friday) and sometime during the night (morning) someone lit it on fire. She said three cans of recycling and trash burned, too. The outside of the building was blackened, mostly basement and first floor apartments, with broken windows. Nobody was hurt, she said, although 2 cats are missing. Yeah, that is sad. Naturally as I walked away toward the subway my eyes were glued to the ground (under cars, behind bushes, along fences) looking for frightened kitties.
