"New Year’s day started off quite calmly actually. I decided to go take a New Year’s Day stroll down Venice Beach Boardwalk and on my way back home was alerted about an apartment fire very close to my location. So I headed over and caught what was on apartment fire that was under investigation as they think it was an arsonist/transient setting fires in the area."

Someone drove onto the Venice Boardwalk last night and crashed their car.
