Hello, Los Angeles; today is National Yucatan Shrimp Day, which was founded in 2020 by Florida-based Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille! I’m here in your inbox as usual to tell you everything you need to know about what’s happening in town. Here is…

Is a big rig to blame for triggering a brush fire on the 60? Also, what was going on at santa ana school who injured three children? Eventually someone thought it was a good idea to rent a truck and equip its sides with anti-Semitic messages.

Here are the top stories in LA today:

  1. A big oil rig we think we have started a bush fire “on a hill north of Pomona Highway (60) westbound in the Diamond Bar area. The first reports came in at 11:30 a.m. Monday from Phillips Ranch Road. LAFD deployed helicopters dropping water. You may have been caught up in the resulting Highway 60 closure. (Patch)
  2. There was a road accident Monday near Taft Elementary School in Santa Ana. A vehicle rolled on a sidewalk and hit three children. “The police said that the suspect had entered Taft before the collision and was escorted off campus. » It is worrying that the police found incendiary devices inside the vehicle. (NBC)
  3. A rental truck drove through West Hollywood and Beverly Hills this last weekend. What makes it a puzzle is the fact that its sides have been covered in antisemitic messages. Of course, with the license plate in place, it shouldn’t take long for the LAPD to find out who rented it. What is strange, however, is that two men appeared to film the reaction of the crowd at a gas station. “The angry crowd told the two men to leave, but according to the WeHo Social Justice Coalition, there were also other supporters and corroborators who were defending the two men and free speech.” (NBC)
  4. Why is “LA Homeless Services Authority throws away crates of food for distributionCBS revealed a hidden camera report that shows employees throwing usable food. (SCS)
  5. Mark your calendars! The Mid-City Taco Restaurant Sonoratown will open Tuesday next week! If you are a loyal customer of the first address in the Fashion District, go to 5610 St. Vincent and support the new location! (LA eater)
