There's also been a structure fire and a camper fire, both in the Jungle within the last month.  Sounds like the Jungle is becoming a pretty rough place lately.

Ithaca has the Jungle , Elmira has bridge communities . Surprising a city that touts Safe shootup places for addicts can’t seem to help some of the homeless ( the ones that want help that is ) .
