Encampment Found Under Lighthouse Bridge

You’ll notice in one of the attached photos, there’s an unattended open flame in one of the bedrooms (Not shown; it was too dark.) Just outside the room were charred books, wood and other partially burned materials. This area is surrounded by dry brush that abuts directly to homes. This seems like a serious fire hazard. Are we expected to just live with people living and cooking meth 1/2 block from our house?

    I wonder if this was why 3 trash cans were lit on fire last night by the Starbucks at Washington and Pacific?

      Seems to me that heavy gage chain link fencing secured to the entrance to these “bedrooms” would be a helpful step in discouraging these encampments.
