Roasted Trash Barrels for Thanksgiving Dinner in Uphams Corner?



Roasted Plastic Trash Barrels for Thanksgiving Dinner in Uphams CornerAs we walked down Monadnock St towards Dudley, a police cruiser pulled a U-y, stopped in the middle of Dudley Street, and said: “Be careful.  Some clown is setting the trash barrels on fire.”  That was at 2am. 

Fifteen minutes before, the dogs and I had gone for a walk.  Turning the corner onto Dudley Street, we saw a very unusual sight for a street that is normally dark, quiet, empty - even desolate.  The rubber trash barrel in front of L&M Bargain was on fire.  Further down on Dudley in front of the Brazilian church was another barrel consumed in flames, and that’s where the police cruiser and a fire truck sat.

“Take the dogs home and get the camera,” I thought but by then the fires were out and a crowd of youth (all guys) were standing at L&M, looking at the bright red sports car next to the still hot barrel.  The owner had heard his car alarm go off and had come out to check on his car.   By the time he and his friends got there, the fire had left a large imprint on the side of the car - bare metal and blistered paint. 

With their job done, the police cruiser pulled off and with a honk of the horn so loud it startled us, the fire engine pulled off as well.

Roasted trash barrels for Thanksgiving dinner?  Mmmm mmm delicious!!

Of course this isn't the first time trash barrels have been set on fire.  See article from April 12, 2011 "Burned out DPW Trash Barrels."
