Good evening, everyone, it's 9:01pm. It's a cold late May night. Temps are in the lower 50s. Not average for this time of year. And it's raining. Anyway, tomorrow, I'll be monitoring 17 most of the day for you residents North of Belmont in our community. It'll be probably be boring and quiet for the most part, but hey, those readers deserve to know what's happening in their area, too. Also, since I have no school Monday due to Memorial Day, I'll be on my weekend schedule Sunday and Monday for 25. That means I'll monitor from after my dinner to a little after midnight Sunday evening, then from when I wake up to my dinner on Monday. That's all I've got to say for now, so here's crime for tonight.

As of 10:50, CFD had it under control, with probably 10 trucks responding. Lots of acrid smoke, fire burned through the roof,".
