LAX Fires

Whats with all the auto fires in LAX? The news videos appear to show BMWs in some of the garages. I hope that they get the sick sob(s) that are doing this.

It's not LAX (was it a typo, and you meant LA?).

Yeah - in Hollywood.

Just moved here from NYC - lucky me in terms of timing, i guess. but for the neighborhood-wide phone call re: "11 suspicious events in your area" that went out from LAPD @ 5AM, i wouldn't have known that something was happening. haven't seen any evience of the damage roadside, etc.

still, i have friends visiting tonight and they're now generally uncomfortable about parking on the street, etc. more importantly, however, is the fact that no Ms were harmed during the course of the fires ...

That's bcuz likes of Bentley's, Ferrari's, Aston Martin's, Lambos, etc, are abundant in SoCal. M's in comparison are...

BTW, did a string of arsons in NYC suddenly stop when you moved here...?

It's most likely a Ferrari catching fire and lighting up anything nearby.
