Clayton’s Corner: Uber in the Crossfire on Allen Street
In this latest installment of Clayton’s Corner, photographer Clayton Patterson sent along these image of an Uber driver whose car was incinerated in a curbside garbage fire on Allen Street, near Stanton.
The fire department suggested that an errant cigarette butt may have sparked the fire that consumed the car. And with a noticeable uptick in street trash these days, that was kindling enough.
“There are homeless around opening and spreading garbage around,” Patterson says. “I document around here a lot, and do not remember seeing this kind of rubbish at a curb.”
