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!”


There was a fire at Central and Grove: The video is not of the house where the fire started but of next door to where the fire spread.
