“You should never leave a magnified mirror next to a window.

“My room went up in flames after the light reflected light onto my curtains and set them on fire.

Massive tree crashes into bedroom while couple slept in Montecito home

Tree crashes into Montecito home

MONTECITO, Calif. – Longtime Montecito residents Oscar and Linda Sepulveda had a close call during the recent storm when powerful winds and rains uprooted a massive tree that crashed from a neighbor’s yard into their bedroom.

The pine tree came down late Thursday night while the couple was asleep.

Montecito had received two and a half inches of rain coupled with 50 mph wind gusts throughout the day and into the evening.

“The whole thing started with the rain coming down,” said Oscar Sepulveda. “There was thunder and lightning. It was incredible.”

A loud crash overhead startled the couple from their sleep.

“All of the sudden, some tree branches were sticking through the ceiling hanging over our bed,” Sepulveda said.

The tree, about 70 feet tall, slammed into their home on Sycamore Canyon Drive. Three large branches punctured their roof. The branches dangling eerily from their ceiling.

One branch was just inches from the head of their bed.

“We’ve been very, very lucky,” Sepulveda said.

The couple has lived through two fires and the devastating mudslide last January.

Sepulveda said he and his wife are grateful they weren’t injured by the tree.

Kidnapped actor allegedly trapped naked in a bathroom speaks: ‘I’m a survivor’

636667282318299725-Screen-Shot-2018-07-09-at-10.16.22-AM.png

Joey Capone, an actor who was allegedly kidnappedalong with actress Daisy McCrackin from her home in L.A. on May 3, granted his first interview about the incident to ABC News, describing a harrowing ordeal that involved him being trapped naked in a bathroom for 30 hours.

According to the Associated Press, prosecutors allege that the three suspects in the case — Andre Stewart, Johntae Jones and Amber Neal — went to McCrackin’s home, pistol-whipped Capone, placed bags over the two victims’ heads and drove them to Jones’ home in Compton.

“They whacked me on the head with a gun and proceeded to stomp on me and give me a pretty good beating,” Capone said. “(Someone) grabbed me by the collar and dragged me outside and down the driveway and threw me in the back of a car, where Daisy was already in the backseat, and they put bags over our heads. They stripped me naked and threw me in this filthy bathroom with no lights on.”

Prosecutors said the suspects held Capone in the bathroom for 30 hours without food, while Jones and Neal drove McCrackin to several ATMs forcing her to withdraw money, eventually coercing her into writing a $10,000 check to secure hers and Capone’s release.

“They said things like ‘If she doesn’t come through man, I don’t know what I’m going to have to do, I don’t know what’s going to happen to you,” Capone said.

The next day, the suspects brought McCrackin back to her home, where she escaped and called police, authorities said.

Neal was arrested at gunpoint by Los Angeles police officers on Monday, with a video of her arrest captured by a bystander sparking outrage online, before it was revealed that she was a suspect in the kidnapping plot.

“I’m not a victim, I’m a survivor,” Capone said. “I think it’s a state of mind. Yeah, that happened, but what’s the moral?”

Bedroom fire damages West Hartford home

Image result for Bedroom fire damages West Hartford homeJust a day after taking over the top spot with the West Hartford Fire Department, newly appointed Chief Gregory Priest was digging through charred debris at a house fire Sunday that chased a family out of their Clarendon Avenue home.

“It’s been an interesting first 24 hours,” Priest said.

The blaze, which started in a second-floor bedroom at 9 Clarendon Ave., at the corner of South Quaker Lane, was reported at about 4:30 p.m. Firefighters arrived in four minutes, by which time the occupants had evacuated, Priest said. The fire was quickly knocked down and there were no injuries, he said.

Priest said investigators believe the fire was accidental and have traced the origin to a piece of electrical equipment. The flames were contained to the bedroom, but there was smoke and heat damage in other rooms and the house was not habitable Sunday night, Priest said.
