Too bad for the home owners as the city will never accept responsibility and the insurance companies will figure out a way to not payout as they are on your side till they have a claim, like a good neighbor till there's a claim and in good hands till you file a claim!

Can't wait till the crisis is over as the media / community will forget it even happened. I'll the the hands up don't shoot protesters a shout out as they hit the streets in protest for days on end. This event will only be remembered by the 3 property owners when the "crisis" is over.
