Beloved Local Crackhouse Burns, Many Left Without Rock
This evening, crazy-popular NOPA crackhouse (aka “the pink house”) caught on fire and took a neighbor’s building with it to Hell. Presumably a Hell without crack. There are lots of photos on Flickr in this set, and I’ve got a video forthcoming of our incredibly awesome SF firefighters braving smoke, windows that have been shuttered and closed since I was at least five years old, and probably a huge wad of burning overly-processed methanphetamines and aluminum foil to put the fire out. According to mainstream media, the cause of the blaze is still a mystery.
Update: video embedded after the jump and on this Blip show page. At the end there’s some cool window-smashing and hose-wielding, and at the tail end you can hear a neighborhood resident talking about how he’s watched people do drug deals out the second floor window (from the house the fire started), called the cops, and how they “don’t care!”
