Many residents who live in the neighborhood where the pallet-field fire occurred say this could have been prevented. They say the city was aware of the dangers of that field.

According to one local, there is years worth of garbage, hundreds of wooden pallets and several other elements that could easily spark a fire.

"We knew this was inevitable, we have already had one or two fires back here that came close," says neighbor Robert Stewart who lives about 150 feet away from the field.
