Fire Followup

Just a quick follow up to the massive fire that happened last week. This is the building that fronts Wyandotte St. with the apartments above. Looks like the residents were allowed back in to gather belongings. Hopefully the businesses and their owners on the main floor won’t lose their shirts with the long closure.

One thing that irks me, is the media reporting on this fire. Please look at a map. Wyandotte and Marentette is NOT on the EAST SIDE. Lately the media starts all reports by saying “A massive fire on Windsor’s east side…” This is downtown. The east side IMO is Pillette or Jefferson, heck I’d even accept Central as “East Side”. However this is about as much in the core of the city as you get. AM800, A Channel & The Windsor Star are all guilty of that.
