Street fire trashes 2 cars

Fire near Hoboken Homeless Shelter wrecks cars

Here’s an eyewitness report from that car fire that took place in the wee hours today:


The charred scene on 3rd Street – A red sedan was totaled and carted away.

Did Milton start the fire?

“A big fire started last night/early this am at around 3:15am in front of the Hoboken homeless shelter, at 3rd Street between. Bloomfield and Garden Streets. We first heard a loud pop and then looked out the window and saw flames shoot 20 feet high, at least. The fire ignited the garbage bags sitting along the sidewalks that have been there for 2-3 days.

The fire then ignited a nearby red sedan (brand new) and the gas tank caught on fire. As for the fire, we saw a guy that looked similar to the “Office Space” pyro (the “where’s my stapler?” guy) not kidding, walking around aimlessly, so if anyone sees someone resembling him, milling the streets, looking suspicious, contact Police.”

See? Parking in a garage is always the best option! And if you see that guy – give HPD a call at (201)420-2100.


A girl had her melted car towed away this afternoon.

Always be alert!

      Hey John14, where around town do you see that Milton doofus? What general appearance does he have? Clean clothes? A bag/man purse of any kind? Ever with anyone else or always alone? What time of day? Wondering so I can also keep a look out. Thanks. [quote comment=”219028″]I see that milton doofus around town. Can’t say he did it, but I wouldn’t put it past him.[/quote]

    Expect more of this in 2013. Our world is going collectively nuts. If you don’t believe it, you’re one of them.

    I was driving down the turnpike by the science center and smoke started to come out of the dash board along with a awful smell. It came out of the vents, seams and radio it got bad fast I pulled over bailed out then a trooper arrived and used a extinguisher to put it out. At no time were there any flames and the entire wiring harness melted and had to be replace– mucho dinero.
