VIDEO: The Fire Department last night extinguished a large dumpster fire near the Minyan Shelanu in what appears to be an accidental fire, according to a source from Minyan Shelanu. The fire was reported approximately 10:00 PM last night, several minutes after a student reportedly flicked a cigarette into the trash-filled dumpster parked in the lot.
The fire was extingushed without incident, and nobody was injured. TLS/Video credit: Lakewood Shopper.
who ever this person was just stupid, never flick a cigerette, out a car window, garbage, etc.. step on it
Was station 66 there?
whoever caused the fire because of their incompetence and carelessness should be fined!
For those unaware of such rules- It is against the law to throw any debris out your car window, and that includes cigarettes. You can wind up with a hefty fine on your hands.
And as the poster above me wrote, if you are going to litter, step on the cigarette, and ensure the fire is completely out before walking away. I’ve seen these kinds of things happen a lot more than most may think. We were lucky to have noticed the small fire forming all those times…
Let this incident be a lesson to all who smoke.
A) It was not a student. It seems to have been a trespasser, as people do tend to use the backyard as a shortcut to other streets.
B) The culprit may be a habitual trespasser. There’s a possibility that this trespasser has even trespassed into this country.
(there have been fires started by “habitual trespassers” hanging out back there in the passed.)
Thank G-d, no one got hurt.
Thanks to the almost immediate response of the LPD & LFD.
# 4 you seem to have a lot of information as to who caused the fire and who didnt caused it ? The past few years there seems to be many “habitual trespassers/” caused fires in that area of Ocean Ave.
Oh yes blame it on someone else. As the saying goes “it wasn’t me”
