Egads! On Sunday night in the Mission, unidentified rapscallion(s) set a gutter ablaze. Mission Mission's Ariel Dovas reports, "[S]omeone lit the northside gutter between Mission and San Carlos streets on fire. At least two cars parked along the block were caught in the blaze. A third car pulled out from behind them before the fire spread."
Dovas notes that, after he came on the scene, "the two cars were pretty much melted into the sidewalk on their right sides."
YouTube user northofsouthofmarket captured video of the fire in progress.
Not sure if this is the work of the now Norma Desmond-like "carsonist" (where is he/she, anyway?), but no arrests were made.
No arrests have been made.
