Fire Guts Flower Stand
An apparent electrical fire destroyed a small flower stand at 1275 Gilman St. minutes before midnight on Oct. 6, reports Acting Fire Chief David Orth.
The single-alarm blaze destroyed the structure and contents of Moje’s Flowers and Gifts.
Firefighters said the blaze started in the interior of the small structure and have placed the blame on overloaded electrical circuits, although the case is still listed as suspicious only because of a series of other small blazes in the area dating back several weeks.
“We don’t think it was arson,” Orth said.
