My brother used to work at the Chinatown firehouse near there. He's no longer there, but he used to tell me that it was hell getting trucks around there with the traffic. Hope everyone is safe.
That sucks. Get that robo-snake thing over there quick to see if anyone is trapped. Also, I wonder if thermal cameras would see trapped bodies beneath the rubble?
The one they were bringing down was an old adult books store. So the walls were only held up by dried cum and tears.
Let me play internet detective. I don't see any blast marks or charred shit. Im ruling out explosion and going with good ol cost-cutting, shortcut-taking, shitty construction.
