Last night around 11pm a fire caught between the building that houses Cha Cha Cha and the one that holds Specchio on Mission Street.
The two buildings are just a couple inches apart, so the firefighters seemed to have a difficult time making sure they fire was completely extinguished.
They brought the hoses to the roof and sprayed down into the narrow space, which would send a vertical sheet of water out at the gawkers.
There were a lot of gawkers (present company of course included), coming out of the bars, probably wanting any excuse to get away from creepy Marina bros in Dr. Teeth.
Fortunately it looked as if there was no serious damage to either of the buildings, and nobody was injured. Plus I got to hear some good lines from the fireman to some drunk ladies excited at seeing some real men in action on their night out.
Fireman: “So, what are you guys drinking tonight?”
Well, I guess you don’t really need a good line if you’re in a fireman uniform and holding a 3 foot ax.
