Your headline needs fixed. Fire near Ninth street and what?

I think it was near the corner of Hyper & Critical

I disagree. Ninth Street isn't some short lane. It runs quite a distance. More accurate proximity should have been given. I clicked the story thinking there was a fire downtown.

...'Course maybe that's exactly what the JW was hoping.

Pywacket, You're correct. I've changed it to the correct spelling. Thanks, Alex
