Well, you know it is officially summer time in Detroit when truck dropping season starts at the Packard Plant.
It would appear that the mischievous little gremlins who tried to launch this giant camper off the roof ran into a little snag there on the edge of the building….
This is the last building in the abandoned part of the complex (Kirlin is in the last warehouse on Concord at I-94). I was going to go up to the roof to take photos of the camper up close, but there were multiple scrappers inside working away full blast, making a huge racket with powertools and cutting torches. This building was also on fire before noon.
Just like everyday, there were multiple large fires going while I was there yesterday morning. This one was going pretty good around 11:30 a.m. There was another that had already taken it course but still had small flames on the south side on the second floor. That must have been burning over night.
Around dinner time, I start hearing that the camper is on fire !
I waited a while, then headed down to check it out.
Sure enough, dude had been burned to a crisp..
After I was watching for a while, the fire moved quickly through other floors.
“Houston, we have a problem”….
Ohhhhh….Poor camper. It never got to fly.
