Early morning fire at 2nd and Commercial (old Eureka Ice building) units have been there for several hours.

An EPD police officer on patrol saw flames from a distance and when she arrived at the location, the building was completely engulfed in flames.

There have been two other fires at second and A in an abandoned building,  transients were at both locations.

  2. its part of the homeless problem. I work directly with this demographic. ive had clients who were part of the devils playground tell me about how they have a different set of laws. back in devils playground it was kept out of sight, we had no idea what was going on. burning camps was a way they would take revenge on someone who ripped them off, it was a warning that they needed to leave, a homeless eviction. these fires are part of the DP ways spilling out on to our streets. clearing out palco marsh didn't fix the problem, it made it worse, crime is up, more reports of people using openly on the street, burglary, car break ins. its only going to get worse. there were many more people back there than were counted, a few shipping containers isn't going to fix the situation. these people need rehabilitation, they need housing. the problem is they have adapted to a way of life & no longer want to be a part of society. so how do you help those who don't want to be helped?...

    1. Well said anon. The problem also will not go away until those that do want help are given time and patience to maintain change and offered hope by businesses and politicians getting out of denial, working towards a real economy in humboldt and affordable housing. And that will require the extreme left in this town and the extreme right in this town, getting rich at the expense of working and poor people to start feeling the economic effects. Instead, they all own properties, take vacations and silence anyone willing to talk about real solutions.
