Fire burns down Safeway

A massive inferno burned down the Safeway grocery store on Wednesday at Northern and 35th avenues. No one was hurt.


So sad. — @emicrystal


They should either move to Metrocenter by Conns or the old K-mart spot by the freeway on Northern east of their current location — @AZAPACHE2009


Motorists disregarding no-turn signs

There is an issue at the intersection of Conestoga and Union Hills drives in Sun City. When going north approaching Union Hills Drive, there are two signs that state “No Turns On Red.” These signs are being ignored by most drivers because they are not placed directly at the traffic signals.


Thank you for bringing this to our attention. MCDOT crews will take a closer look at this intersection. — Maricopa County Department of Transportation
