The 5 Facts You Need to Know
1. Firefighters are working to determine the cause of a fire that broke out in a luxury apartment building under construction at Central and Carlisle. It began around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at “The Carlisle” in Nob Hill and the flames could be seen for miles. One witness says the flames towered dozens of feet into the air at one point. No injuries have been reported.
2. Wednesday, sunny. Highs in the mid 50’s to lower 60’s. Wednesday night, mostly clear. Lows in the upper 20’s to mid 30’s.
3. It’s one of the busiest travel days of the year, and as thousands hit the road for the Thanksgiving holiday, law enforcement across the state will be keeping an eye out for drunk drivers. Starting Thanksgiving weekend, they’ll be focusing on I-40 in what they call their “Holiday Superblitz,” which lasts through January. Last year, police made almost 300 arrests.
4. In just under two weeks, the Santa Fe School Board is scheduled to consider a proposal from the school district to redraw boundries for Capital and Santa Fe High Schools. Santa Fe High in midtown can accommodate a couple hundred more students. However, Capital High School on the city’s southside is well over capacity. If the proposal passes, the new boundaries would only affect freshmen starting next year.
5. Thousands of local shoppers are gearing up to hit the stores starting Thursday. This, as the Duke City comes in at number 17 on Yelp’s list of the “Top 20 Cities for Local Holiday Shopping.” The list was made up based on Yelp reviews of non-chain businesses. The top three spots include San Diego, Austin and Denver.
