Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 12th 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 13, 2008 3 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Snapper in hot seat to get car blaze in frame See the footage online at www.innerwestweekly.com.au DRAMATIC images of a car en- gulfed in flames in Five Dock have been captured by Inner-West Weekly photographer Phil Blatch. Our shooter was driving back to the office when he noticed plumes of black smoke rising in the air at 1.10pm last Thursday. ''As I turned the corner into William St I saw the burning car,'' he said. ''I was one of the first on the scene. The police arrived just after me and then the fire brigade and ambulance came. ''I think there was concern that the car might have had LPG gas that might have blown up. ''Crews wearing breathing ap- paratus put it out pretty fast and thankfully no one was hurt.'' The cause of the fire is still not known but the car was towed away for forensic examination. A spokesman for Burwood police said they are interested in speaking to anyone who was in the vicinity at the time. Phone Burwood police on 9745 8499. Call for soup kitchens FIONA BRADY Cr Nick Adams Do we need to prepare for the worst? Tell us at www.innerwestweekly.com.au People line up for free soup during the Great Depression. AN Ashfield councillor is calling for soup kitchens and breadlines to be considered in case local residents are impoverished by the world economic crisis. Liberal councillor Nick Adams has asked Ashfield Council to report on whether it could provide those services ''if the crisis be- came such that a great number of our residents became homeless and unemployed''. ''It is in the times of uncertainty and relative prosperity that we need to make the plans for the act of battle and the thornier times,'' he said in a notice of motion due to be moved at Tuesday night's coun- cil meeting. But Mayor Ted Cassidy doesn't believe that Ashfield will be trans- formed into Skid Row. ''All I can say is that Nick is good at heart, but I think he is a little premature in this case,'' he said. ''We have not reached the stage that we need soup kitchens in Ashfield and hopefully we have governments that will stop it happening entirely.'' Greens councillor Marc Rerceretnam, who has a PhD in economic history, doesn't think Ashfield people will be queuing for bread any time soon either. The Rev Bill Crews from Ashfield's Exodus Foundation said the Loaves and Fishes Res- taurant had not had a huge in- crease in patronage yet, but they had been told to ''prepare for a tsunami''. Cr Adams said he was not calling for soup kitchens to be opened immediately. ''All this motion is asking for is for the general manager (of Ashfield Council) to prepare a report telling us what position we are in just in case things get really bad,'' he said. ''When would they like to call for a report? If and when people are dying and hungry in the streets? This is the very reason Ashfield has the reputation it does. ''It is never forward-thinking."
