Raging Hoboken dumpster fire
This was supposed to be up hours ago, but I got held up a bit… you know.. stuff happens.
Anyway, just after midnight today, a construction dumpster at 812 Washington Street magically caught on fire (it couldn’t have been those new “Fire Safety” cigarettes now, could it)?
I spotted the fire nearly three blocks away and walked with my trusty dog to check it out.
Lo Behold, I run into Roger Muller, of Muller Insurance! He conveniently had snapped exclusive video coverage with his reliable Canon Powershot point and shoot camera. Better than that, he trusted me with his flash memory card so I could make this patriotic video. When I asked him “what soundtrack do you suggest?”, he said “Stars and Stripes, because of the GREAT job the Hoboken Fire Department did.”
“If they got here just a few minutes later, it could have been much worse, possibly damaging nearby vehicles!”
Agreed, Mr. Muller. So here’s your Hoboken411 video debut, along with John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever.”
Even if you don’t care to watch a lowly dumpster on fire, at least watch to get into a patriotic mood!
