"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

This past Thursday at 5 am,  a car parked on Henry Street close to the corner of Union Street near Bar Bruno was apparently totaled when the flames from a trash can fire ignited it. The front of the SUV is completely burnt out.  The back of a second car in front of this one was also engulfed in flames, according to residents on that block.
Apparently, the strong wind that day spread the fire from the trashcan in the direction of the cars,
Two readers alerted us to this and were kind enough to send in the photos above.
Needless to say, we feel for the owner. This is scary.
