    Apartment fire?

    A friend just posted a picture on Facebook of a pretty intense fire at an apartment building behind Hyland. Anyone hear anything? I haven't found anything online.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Ames Tribune > Structure fire reported on Campus Ave.

    The Ames Fire Department is reporting a structure fire at 230 Campus Ave. Radio traffic indicates that the fire is burning through the structure roof. More information as it becomes available.

    3:48 p.m. Fire teams are doing a search on the second floor of the building.

    3:52 p.m. Radio traffic says that the fire has been knocked down and firefighters are looking for hidden hot spots.

    Just walked by it like 2 minutes ago, looks pretty bad (but I'm not a firefighter).

    I work for the property management that manages 230 Campus. Fire department has it under control and management is on the scene!

    Good to hear it's under control.

    The last part reminds me of "Hi, I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

    (I'm admittedly a cynic of management...likely the result of too many Dilbert cartoons and spending too much time with technicians on my internships)

    You don't have to be a firefighter to tell someone this is bad:



    A two year old could tell me that is bad.

    Re: Apartment fire?

    So this thread reminds me to recommend everyone get renters insurance. I got it after an acquaintance's house burned down and he was left with nothing. I'm paying an extra $14 a year, and have everything I own covered. If my dog bites someone, I have coverage, if my car is broken into(again, for the third time) my stuff is covered.

    The guy who rents that apartment is probably screwed, and the whole building will probably be unoccupied for a couple of days.

    Where'd you get that deal? I thought ~$100/year was the common rate.

    Edit to add: Great point about having renters' insurance, though. Definitely worth the money.

    If only there was somebody (preferably a cyclone fanatic) that could give me a great deal on renters' insurance....

    Any ideas?
