Are folks still living there, with police and the city turning a blind eye? I only ask because fires / arson among transients or whatever we're calling 'unhoused' folks these days is a common trend... not trying to judge anyone, and I know it's not PC to say, but it's sadly a thing.

How do you know (or can confirm) that this fire was started by a homeless individual?

Many Crescent Park residents are seemingly out of touch with the real world because they are affluent & only concerned with their own needs and exigencies.
