We need to press for answers on the post office fire

9 Mar

Wow, here’s some real investigative reporting! (sarcasm alert)  This story sounds more like a push piece for local fire agencies than NEWS. 

I wish those of you who hold boxes at that annex would contact Ch 12 ( news@actionnewsnow.com) and Chico police chief Mike OBrien (send it through the city clerk dani.rogers@chicoca.gov )  and ask when we will know more about the cause of this  fire. Was it arson? Was anyone arrested or questioned?
