Arson or Fire: 57 People Displaced In Walnut Creek Fire it's another Chris Butler Client

NOTE:  Nearly eight years later I find someone who lived in the unit that caught on Fire and hired Chris Butler.  Same story like mine - attempted murder in Sonoma, Marin, Alameda, San Francisco but NOT Contra Costa County - I've got plenty more like this one.

57 People Displaced In Walnut Creek Fire

Friday, August 18, 2006
Contra Costa County's fourth major fire in eight weeks has left 57 Walnut Creek residents displaced and rescue workers feeling exhausted, Red Cross spokeswoman Mila Fairfax said today.

The most recent, four-alarm fire began sometime after 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Broadway Plaza apartment complex at 1170 Lincoln Ave. in downtown Walnut Creek, destroying seven units and heavily damaging 10 more, according to Contra Costa County Fire Protection District spokeswoman Emily Hopkins.
Contra Costa County Fire Inspector Bob Davis said firefighters evacuated 38 units, some of which were heavily burned or gutted by flames. The floor in one unit partially collapsed, preventing firefighters from completely controlling the fire until about 10 p.m.

According to Hopkins, a male firefighter and a female resident were taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Hopkins said the firefighter has been released but she had no information today on the woman's condition.
Early this morning, residents were allowed to return to their apartments to gather personal belongings, though according to Fairfax, almost nothing was salvageable from some units.

Animal control officers spent the morning looking for missing pets, Fairfax said. She said she was hopeful because "most of the animals in the fire were cats, and cats have skill in escaping fires. If there is a way for a cat to get out, they will."
Fairfax said residents whose apartments were not damaged would probably be allowed to return home this afternoon.

The Red Cross is making available mental health professionals for fire victims, and Fairfax said two dozen people were waiting to speak with counselors by 10 a.m.

Hopkins said those displaced by the fire should visit the Red Cross service center at Civic Park Community Center, 1375 Civic Drive at North Broadway. It is open until 6 p.m. today.

"This is the fourth major fire in eight weeks in Contra Costa County, so both the first responders and Red Cross volunteers are feeling strained," Fairfax said.
The first of the four apartment fires occurred in Bay Point on June 27. The second happened on July 18 in Concord and the third fire took place in Walnut Creek on Aug. 5.

The cause of Thursday's fire, which caused an estimated $2 million in damage, is under investigation.

Walnut Creek CA:  Once you're an arson victim you simply keep your eyes wide open but once you've been burned by police officers now in Federal Prison you've got your eyes open even wider.  In my allegations I've got plenty of research to suggest that Police Officers are involved.  I'm betting that someone from Law Enforcement has an access pass or car pass or is bold enough to drive through the gate (Securitas) with happy hand waving guards.

Bay City News Service
A two-alarm fire in the Rossmoor retirement community damaged at least one car Sunday evening, a Contra Costa County fire dispatcher said.

Firefighters responded to reports of a single-alarm fire in the 2600 block of Saklan Indian Drive shortly before 7 p.m., the dispatcher said.

The fire was upgraded to two alarms about 10 minutes later and contained before 7:20 p.m., according to the dispatcher.

The blaze started in a wooden carport attached to a residence damaging at least one car, according to the dispatcher.

At least three residences were damaged but further details were not available.

Residents at the three units declined aid from the American Red Cross, according to the dispatcher.

No injuries were reported, the dispatcher said.

Mooney, Ryan Pleasant Hill: Family escapes fast-moving house fire - Contra Costa

Pleasant Hill: Family escapes fast-moving house fire

UPDATED:   10/16/2013 03:44:15 PM PDT

PLEASANT HILL -- Ryan Mooney crouched next to his kitchen door around 1:10 a.m. Wednesday, seeing through the bottom crack what appeared to be flickering lights in the garage.
His wife had awakened him moments earlier after hearing loud noises from the garage, wondering if a stranger was in their Dove Court home.
"So," he said, "I slowly open the door, thinking I'm getting ready to startle a burglar."
Instead, a cloud of black smoke rushed into the home and forced Mooney, his wife and his 11-year-old daughter to flee. The one-alarm fire partly damaged the home and destroyed the garage, along with two cars parked in the driveway, causing small explosions that awakened neighbors.
Mooney, 32, and his family escaped out a back door and climbed a back fence to safety. A power line near the house exploded and fell near the driveway as the family was evacuating. PG&E crews were needed to shut down the power.
"I don't think it's hit me yet," Mooney said. "I'm thankful that everyone's OK. When you think about it, a house is just a house. Everyone's OK, so we'll handle it."
Mooney said that he had spent part of Tuesday staining his decks and that he left four to six oily rags in his garage. The odor of the rags eventually became too difficult to ignore, he said, and he moved the rags outside about 9:30 p.m. About four hours later, his wife heard loud bangs.
She wasn't the only one.
"Woke us up," said Joe O'Neal, a neighbor who lives around the corner and about six houses away. "Loud pops. Like mini-explosions. Actually, I thought they were gun shots when I first heard them."
The explosions, Contra Costa Fire Protection District officials said, came from the two cars -- a Mercedes and a Land Rover -- that were destroyed, fire inspector Lisa Martinez said. Investigators believe parts of the car tires may have exploded and that the other explosions may have been caused by magnesium in the car batteries, Martinez said.
Investigators have not said what caused the fire, but Mooney said the oily rags may have combusted. Mooney said that the house likely will be salvaged but that the family will live at a residential hotel for an indefinite period. Fire crews did not put a monetary estimate on the damage to the home.
The family also had several pets, he said, including a Macaw bird and some rabbits. Mooney grabbed the bird, and all but one of the rabbits were found in the aftermath.

5:30 p.m. Update: Man dies in Magalia fire

The Butte County Sherriff's office and Butte County Fire Investigation Team are investigating a fatal fire that at a single wide mobile home on Drexel Road in Magalia.
The fire, which authorities say was the second one at the home in two weeks, occurred at 2:47 a.m. and began in the back bedroom.
The name of the man who died is being withheld until deputies can get a positive identification, though Sgt. Jason Hail said they believe that they know the name of the victim.
Firefighters were called after a neighbor Marion Prevatt, 40, was awakened by his growling dog as if someone was in his yard.
But when Prevatt looked outside, he saw the mobile directly across the street from his emanating smoke and ran across the street to help his neighbor.
“About the time I got there to the front door, there


as like an explosion,” he said. “Something went boom and fire just came out the window and of everything else.”
Despite the fire and the explosion, Prevatt said he still tried getting to his neighbor.
“I got to the ice box near his back room,” he said. “But it got so hot that I started to choke out. I went in three different times … I barely made it out myself.”
Prevatt said he tried yelling for the man to come out and went down to his knees at one point. He said the man never responded to his calls and never yelled for help of any kind.
“I hollered his name but he never responded,” he said.  
Prevatt said the man usually sleeps on the couch and when he entered the house, he noticed the man wasn't there.
“I've never seen him go back there,” he said. “I knew something was wrong when I could find him.”
That is when he made his way to the back of the house, but was overcome with smoke and heat.
“It was so hot, I could see the orange glowing under the door,” he said. “I tried everything I could do to bring the guy out. I just couldn't do it.”
He said the man was a frequent visitor to his home and traded movies with him.
“He was kind of like my father,” he said. “But then my father passed away. He was kind of a role model.
CAL Fire Capt. Joe Tapia said the fire is still under investigation and says it could a month to get finish the investigation.
Tapia said last week's fire at the home and Wednesday morning's fire were both being investigated but would not deem them suspicious.
Hail said that deputies were there for a very in-depth coroner's report and that they are waiting an autopsy to determine cause of death.

Arson or Fire: Raymond Court Walnut Creek - another connection to my story

I know this street which is visible from Magnolia Way. On that same street is a church where I've filed claims in regards to my sons.  In Walnut Creek Church Membership grants you special privileges but it really means you can stalk, harass and run residents off the road but never face charges.

I know Raymond Court and the fire could be more than a coincidence in context to my experience.  For over two years I've complained that I've been followed by persons. One of them is a Contra Costa County Consolidated Fire District Employee that's followed me around Walnut Creek and perhaps farther.  Since I'm an arson victim it's easy for me to say that some type of correlation exists between San Ramon Valley Fire District who also cannot find records pertaining my 2004 truck fire.  

It supporting our public servants which are our trusted highly paid Public Safety personnel we should expect more.  I've recently encountered another case where property was stolen during another SRVFPD call - she lost a 4 Carat diamond, I lost a $40,000 coin collection.

Arson Murder

Contra Costa Times

In 2004 my truck was an arson target, less than a month later a Danville Building Inspector nearly takes my life, then Chris Butler arrives just days later but wait ten years I learn that Tanabe was once my Danville  CA neighbor.  It gets better, I learn that via this litigation that they once were connected to 1776 Ygnacio Valley Road, Walnut Creek CA.    TJust over the hill from Rossmoor on Hunsacker Road Eiko Sugihara was found burned to death in 2009, just like another arson murder on the farm next my house in 1979 now called Ellenwood in PH.  I learn my attorneys wife was murdered on Clifton Court in 1989 then learn Tanabe was connected to that attorney whose offices were burned down in 2001.  

For two years I've gone round and round with Consolidated Fire.  Sorry Pete we can't find what you're looking for - look at your house and compare it to mine. You've got a front door, a key, a car license and your family.  I've got medical bills, I'm homeless, seeking work, and been on the other end of five or more attempts on my life.  You can do a better job than or perhaps these high paid officials be fired? Sounds good to me!

1776 Ygnacio Valley Road - the missing arson files?,

San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District:  You don't have a and can't find a fire record, so then I called CHP asking about their officer who reappeared last year was probing me at the WC Starbucks trying to trick me into thinking my fire wasn't so unusual.  Take a fucking hike officer - you fucked up showing up.  

A few weeks ago I matched up a fireman from Station One to my long held allegations that I've been stalked in Walnut Creek.  He lives down the road from Murder Scene, worked in the same station that that would have responded to the following fires.  Piedmont Lumber, La Virage, 1776 Ygnacio and any combination of the fires found at the schools over the last 20 years.

I knew Peter Branagh, Eric Nunn, Councilman Shimansky, Supervisor Glover, David Schafer, Ian Scott, Peter Haas, Anthony Banta Jr. plus a few persons committing suicide, a few suspect heart attacks, my client was bleeding to death of gun accident, a person sharing his last name jumped from Kaiser, a few homeless that were murdered, and the list goes
