Construction Site of New Condos Catches Fire
A construction site went up in flames early Saturday morning in the city's Hunters Point neighborhood in what appears to be a very suspicious fire.
Press reports say the blaze started at 4 a.m. at West Point and Middle Point roads, and firefighters had the fire under control by 5:30 a.m. According to our police sources, the site, which was being transformed from housing projects into new condos, was a total loss.
Officer Albie Esparza could not yet confirmed whether the fire was the product of fire-happy arsonists; however, it appears to be suspect.
We'll update you as we get more information.
