    Ames Apartment Fire

    Does anyone live out on South Fifth Street? The fire was a little too close to Taco Bell for my liking.

    Its kind of sad that the daily has better coverage of this news event that happened off campus then the tribune or KCCI.

    South Ghettos should have been burned down a long time ago. But a controlled burn with the residents moved out ahead of time would have been the better way to go.

    The Trib had a story posted at 7 a.m., then updated again at noon.

    I was walking to campus at quarter to 7 and I could see smoke in the air. I didn't think much of it until I saw the story.

    Lived there in the mid-70's and the place was sort of a dump even back then when they were new. Crappy wooden frame walkups that creaked and moaned whenever the wind blew hard.

    Hope these folks had some renters insurance.

    Re: Ames Apartment Fire

    I lived there my last semester at ISU, sad to see this happen. For you students that rent, I know money can be tight but the $100 a year for renter's insurance gets you about $20,000 in coverage and is well worth it in case this ever happens to you. Granted it sucks to lose personal items that can't be replaced but take into consideration just how much you have invested in clothes, furniture, electronics, and personal items. $100 is not a lot to pay for the thousands of dollars something like this can put you out.

    My wife lost everything in an apartment fire in West Des Moines in 2005 and thankfully had renter's insurance that covered it all.

    Re: Ames Apartment Fire

    The sad thing about me is, I generally only keep my apartment clean because I don't want an apartment fire to occur and then everyone think that I'm a slob.


    He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.
