One block away from a 9/11 memorial in Old Town Eureka scheduled for 7 pm tonight was another reminder of why we have these people around.Roofers working in a building housing St. Vincent De Paul, found themselves running for their lives as things started to collapse. Everyone got out safely and the fire department has been putting in new wood and shoring things up until contractors can get in and do some serious work.
A square block of Old Town Eureka was blocked off today while the firemen did their work. There was fear that the entire building would fall into the surrounding ones.
Here is to our first responders that show up before anyone knows if it is safe or not and goes in anyway. Thanks for what you do.
