Homeless Camps: Keeping the problem from spreading after camp emptied

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — News 8 has a Your Stories follow-up to a December story in which a company helped clean up a homeless camp in Spring Valley after it caught fire. 

After a fire broke out in September, and a firefighter was injured, the property owner told News 8 he couldn't find anyone willing to clean-up all the mess. 

Following a Your Stories report, a company toured the 9 acres and Tuesday began hauling tons of junk away from the site. 

The company iHaul stepped up after News 8's initial report and watched Chopper 8 video to help with their estimate.

There were concerns that the problem might spread elsewhere, but as News 8's Steve Price tells us, that is not the case.
