Late at night a car and buildings were set on fire on Page and Walton.

Firefighters refused to move in without police escort.
This upset the locals.

The community wanted firefighters but the situation was too dangerous.

There was a lot of outrage on Twitter that firefighters would not come put out the fire. It did not occur to them that the situation was too dangerous for firefighters without police escort. And now they want to blame the firefighters. It’s a continual spiral of violence and insanity.
