The drug house that had the neighborhood in a frenzy a couple years back, right?

We know people on David Ave. can you provide the address or a picture or something please?

1875 David is the address, the fire is under control. It was the abandoned house with the fence around it. I have pictures but I don’t know how to post a picture here.

Cindy, why don”t you drive to your friend’s house and see if you can help them?

I’m not tooo far from David, thought the smoke I ssmelld this afternoon was from that fire. Turns out my neighbor was burning yard debris in his backyard. Isn”t that illegal? Glad no firefighters were hurt knocking down the house fire.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if the vehicle was a Pontiac Firebird?

This house has been an eye sore for years…No one lives in it and someone put a chain link fense around it….Insurance money sounds better than fixing up something that is a mess…(its by the creek)

I saw the smoke when driving home. At the time I happened to be directly in front of the fire district’s main office on Geary Rd. and wondered if they knew about the fire. I then saw the smoke’s color change and knew then that the FD was on scene and putting out a vehicle plus structure fire.

This is the drug house with the homeless people living in it that we kept calling the Concord police about. Never even got a call back

This is a law enforcement and City embarrassment. Never got a call back? Ridiculas.
