The "Burn One Down" jokes are not funny
The SOMA building that caught fire late Tuesday also houses the city's only licensed medical marijuana delivery service, which has, fortunately, been able to continue operations.

Firefighters responded to a two-alarm blaze at a four-story building on 11th Street at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. The fire displaced 20 people, including some employees at The Green Cross, according to spokeswoman Caren Woodson. However, pot deliveries continued unabated Wednesday -- and it will be business as usual unless city authorities deem the building uninhabitable.

Woodson, who also lives in the building, said her apartment, as well as the Green Cross's first-floor offices, are unscathed, and that the fire -- which authorities are still investigating -- started on an outside balcony.
Mindy Talmadge, spokeswoman for the Fire Department, told SF Weekly on Thursday that the investigation could take "months," and in the meantime, the department can't release details on the fire, such as what caused the blaze or where it began.

Woodson, however, said that firefighters made it clear that Green Cross had nothing to do with starting the fire.

"We have been assured that the incident was sparked in an outer stairwell, and is absolutely unrelated to our operations," she wrote in an e-mail. "At no time was The Green Cross on fire."

Whether the building needs to be shuttered while it is gutted and renovated (due to smoke and water damage) is now up to the Department of Building Inspection.

What is unfortunate is that the article is clearly a malicious attempt at character assassination.  The article portends to address a seriousissue of child abuse cover up which offends all decent people.   The facts in the end are that she was assuredhe was innocent and was far from the scene. The additional accusations about Theresa’saccepting money from corrupt people and providing poor hospital servicesfurthers the clear perception of character assassination.  Jesus associated with sinners and she caredfor people at the lowest levels of society that were otherwise ignored.  This is biased and malicious journalism at itsworst. Since the SF City Council condemned the Catholic church one can expectthis as par for the course in SF.
