With all the media attention on the happy hut over the last couple of months, I'm interested in knowing how the fire started?

Well Troy...I read the article and it tells me on the head line ... Space heater ignites Happy Hut fire...does that answer your question... A space heater ignited the fire, according to Fire Marshal Eric McMullen . And btw..the Happy Hut has only been in the paper ONCE over the past few months for selling SYNTHETIC weed...I can already see what your getting @..jus like 911 it was an inside job..Cheers

On a positive note, the paint job on the facade appears to have sustained only minor damage. I guess that's something to be cheerful about, Yankeeholic.. Rather than repaint the entire wall, I'd suggest and artistic rendition of swirling flames around the entry and window's, and perhaps even rename the joint...'Up in Smoke'

I have no remorse for the owner of his store. He's treated his customers as well as his employees like crap for years. He is shady, and I totally believe he would do something like purposely set this place on fire. I hope they do a thorough investigation.

It's interesting that in the photo and videos several of the firefighters without their SCBA on appear to be standing in the smoke, smiling and giggling. Towards the end of one of the videos several can be seen running down to the circle K to get a bag of cheetos and a box of Captain Crunch. Hmmmm....

That wasn't the headline when I posted. They added that after I had posted. But thanks for your concern.

TJ111 Very nice of you to publically criticise the men of our community who VOLUNTEER

steve1984hamilton

to do a job that most of you who point out these things wont or cant do! Understanablly that people will talk about roscoe and his business but for goodness sake cant you find something else to talk about. I am positive those firemen or women who were there knew better what to do then any of us or maybe we would all volunteer! so point is grow up get off your drama horse and LEAVE MAC FIRE DEPARTMENT OUTTA YOUR stupid cynical comments.

It was a joke you morons. I AM A FIREFIGHTER. The joke was about happy hut, not the fire department. Get a clue.

@ Steve, you really should read the posts before commenting. This way, you won't be angry over NOTHING. I'm sure TJ was referring to this video from Jimmy Kimmel's Show of the San Diego Fire Department: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuecxDm2B9w

I have to agree with retiredbs, firefighters can be jackass's, too.

oh.. I get it. Be positive only and that way, we will make sure nothing changes in our messed up society.. So those knocked down, stay there and those on top never change. Good idea... Status Quo - gotcha..... good.. Change - bad ... got it... wink..

I am with Troy's first post! It may say a space heater caused the blaze but, I still think that sounds suspicious. I am usually a fan of sarcasm but,Yankee takes sarcasm to a whole new level!
