CLARKSTON, WA - The Clarkston Fire Department responded to a reported vehicle fire at the Bi-Mart Parking lot in Clarkston on Tuesday at around 11 AM. As fire crews arrived, the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames, but the fire has since been put out. 


I spoke to Clarkston firefighters at the scene and they told me it was likely an electrical fire, as the fire started from underneath the dash. There was also a medical crew on standby in case the owner of the vehicle required medical attention. 

Daily Fly will update this post as more information is made available.

From 1920 to 1933, alcohol was prohibited in the United States. Truly a sad time for lovers of all brews everywhere. Thankfully, in 1933, President Roosevelt decided to lift the prohibition on alcohol. 

So on this date, April 6, 1933, Americans all across the United States lined up at their favorite bars or favorite public houses to have their first (LEGAL) alcoholic beverage in 13 years. Ever since that night, this day has been affectionately named, 'New Beer's Eve', a precursor to 'New Beers Day'.
