    Did anyone see this on the news?

    I was driving home from work and there was a ton of freeway traffic... i merge on only to see tons of smoke coming from off the side of the freeway...
    so i want to take the next exit to see whats going on, but the cops have it all blocked off...
    i drive down the freeway and it looks like a plane crashed or something.. theres one huge fire and then a smaller fire quite a ways away... totally thought a plane went down. there were almost hundreds of people on the freeway overpass and on the blocked off street.

    Then i get home to see it was part of a new shopping mall and condo's being built burning down. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
    Glad it wasn't a plane or a terrorist attack because that was like 2 miles from my work.

    10 bucks says it was one of the workers...since the construcion industry is slowing down in the area they would just provide a little job secuirty with destroying it then haveing to rebuild it a few months later..thats just my guess...but i have been wrong many times /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    I work on the other end of that same block. Across from Valley Fair. I had to move my car twice before they evacuated my building! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
    I have a friend that worked that same building and left @3:30. I called him as soon as I noticed the smoke and flames but he was already back at his shop in Milpitas. Then I blamed it on him /forums/images/icons/grin.gif .
    It might have been a scam! I've heard several workers coming out of there saying that they wouldn't get done on time and stuff. Maybe they just bought themselves more time without having to pay much.
    I hear there is one worker still unaccounted for /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif ! I hope it's all good.
