Fire at Saughton Enclosure

Recommended Posts

Hope it's not as bad as I'm hearing, but the pavilion at Saughton Enclosure is on fire just now.

Fire a unit next to running track apparently.

Totally predictable and no surprise whatsoever that the Police are saying it’s deliberate. Some folk are utter scum. And their weans are scum too.

Never felt totally safe round those parts when parking the car, rough as f*ck.

When my mother in law was still alive she lived in Whitson - it's not so bad. There are a lot worse areas further to the west. You get scum kids just about anywhere though, unless you're in places like Barnton or the Grange. The kids there don't become scum until they get jobs and join political parties.

Jesus, you must be pretty sheltered if you think that's rough!

Apparently it was storage for pole vault mats that went on fire, the running track will probably have been burned as well.

You could see the smoke from my house, it seemed to go away pretty quickly.

Aye I played ams football there loads of times over the years. Not the best of areas but would agree with those who’ve said there’s worse.

Didnt see anything in 8MileBU's post that suggested that it wouldn't happen in Bo'ness. There's also no suggestion I can see that most people in one place or the other are scum only that some people in the wider population are. Given the number of these incidents we are seeing right across the central belt in recent times that's fair comment.

Bit much. I work near there and it's no paradise, but it's not that bad (from any experience I've had). Kids anywhere will start fires when they are bored.

Doesn't look like the damage is too bad, so hopefully clubs won't be too badly hit by this, especially since there probably isn't an immediate requirement to get things sorted for games going ahead.

Apparently there was a homeless guy living in there who had to be rescued, hopefully someone is able to get him some help as well.

Right, so do you think I was happy about the fire that destroyed the band hall?

Donyou think I praised the actions of those who set the fire, or do you think I called them scum?

Arse.

Indeed.

No argument from my side only stating facts

Fact: In various threads on this forum you will see I’ve condemned the scum who’ve committed acts of vandalism or arson at several grounds, Bo’ness and elsewhere.

Arse.

Indeed. Don’t think @Allnitelong is the brightest. 

Sadly though, scum are everywhere. Not the first time and won’t be the last time we hear of this.
