Peter Ruiz, the Venice Pier volunteer, arrived at the Venice pier at 5:10 am Tuesday to find firemen putting out the fire and treating a person of interest. Ruiz says pier was fixed and reopened Saturday at 7:30 am.

Darryl DuFay found a short, 10-second video, msn.com, of the event by a CBS correspondent. DuFay says “It was an electrical fire caused by a person under the pier trying to tap into power.”

    Vote out Bonin. That’s the only to get rid of the homeless.
