Homeless Camp’s ‘Warming Fire’ May Have Started Blaze in Stockton
STOCKTON -- After an unusually warm beginning to the month, temperatures in November have been starting to cool quickly, at least at night. Once a major waterway through town, Airport Way, where it crosses Mormon Slough, has been dry for decades and is home to dozens of homeless city dwellers. It's where fire units responded to a call of a grass fire with reports of flames licking up both sides of the bridge. The fire degraded the concrete enough that it has been closed for further inspection.
