Early-morning fire destroys porch on East 18th Street

August 12, 2012


Lawrence firefighters responded to a fire about 1:45 a.m. Sunday at 1632 E. 18th St.

When firefighters arrived, they discovered a wooden front porch burning and quickly extinguished the flames.

A passerby had alerted the homeowner to the fire, and the occupants left the house without injury.

While the fire destroyed the porch, the remainder of the house sustained no damage.

I am now a little bit dumber after reading all of the above comments.

If it smells like a skunk, and it looks like a skunk, it must be a skunk. However, as some of the above poster make very clear. There are people who need to taste the road kill before they can say for sure it is a skunk. Then there are those, that no matter how much history they have on a skunk continue to argue that it is not a skunk. So, to those folks I say, scrape it up off the road, take it home, examine it, taste it, have a professional do D.N.A test on it. Then you can, with all confidence say what Jack said from the git go. "It's a skunk"...

Yes, welcome back to Lawrence, students. Because of our international students we have outdoor seating areas in downtown cafes and more variety in restaurants and the food in stores. There is no reason for a conflict between gown and town. If you talk to those from other parts of the U.S. and the world you might discover that they are........people?

Except that, in typical uninformed ljword commenter fashion, you're blaming the students (and I'm surprised you didn't include Obama in that) for a fire at a house that is occupied by a family in their 30s.

But hey, family with kids, students, whatever; don't let anything like the truth shatter your "everyone but me is the problem" world-view.

welcome back to Lawrence, students. Try to not destroy the entire town.
