"BURN BABY BURN”
Opera? Jazz? Broadway Show Tunes? Whatever style of music you like, Mario can sing it prettier than anyone. This handsome young Italian was born to sing. And sing he did - even while driving his family-owned lunch truck, the "Arinetti Food Coach".
Mario: My voice and my songs are my gift to the world.
Imagine how he felt when his lunch truck caught grease fire and burned
two blocks in the Pacific Palisades to the ground.
|Mario: I was singing O Solo Mio. I just lost my head. I
was holding the high notes for so long, just thinking of my father and
my father's father who both sang this song. I became entranced.
And suddenly, I felt the heat on my back and saw people running and screaming.
Pacific Palisades Fire Department: Yep. It's amazing how hot grease can burn. These roach coaches can be pretty dangerous. It's just lucky nobody was killed.
Pacific Palisades Resident: Singing caterer? He's a singing asshole. If I never see him again it'll be too soon.
This is a story of no villain, only victim. How does the neighborhood deal with the aftermath? How does Mario deal with his guilt? Will Mario ever sing again?
