Shanty Town BBQ gone bad
About an hour or so ago, a brush fire erupted in the cliff by Madison Street between 12th and 14th Streets (by the viaduct). Definitely no Utah-sized blaze with 100’s of thousands of acres ablaze, but still a precarious situation. Union City responded to the top, and Hoboken was hitting it from below.
These seems to happen almost every year, and is suspected to be caused by the homeless individuals living in their Shanty Town along the light rail tracks.
Check out the minute long music video, and 411 reader Meagan also submitted some additional pictures from across the way.
