A fire caused an estimated $1.3 million in damage to buildings in Rosemead containing temporary offices of the Southern California Edison Co., authorities said. The fire Monday struck 22 trailers joined side-by-side in a configuration that formed a 50- by 200-foot, one-story office in the 2200 block of Walnut Grove Avenue, said Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Chuck Gutierrez. Edison spokesman David Barron said the office space was occupied by computer programmers using desk-top equipment.

In case you haven't heard, one of Tiki-dom's most venerable institutions is set to close . Bahooka Family Restaurant in Rosemead is scheduled to shut its doors on March 10 . It's a great old place, opened in 1967, dimly lit except for all of the fish tanks and fabulously kitschy Tiki- and Polynesian-themed decorations fixed all over the walls and ceilings. I went there Sunday to pay the grand dame tribute with a group of friends, including one whose mother once worked at both the Bahooka in Rosemead as well as the old location in West Covina.

The schedule "Investments and Returns" provided very interesting information (Feb. 2). It's hard to believe the cities of Industry and Rosemead don't know what the return is. They represent a quarter billion dollars and more than 27% of the 30-city investment fund. If it's true, then it's time to call in the auditors. Based on what happened in Orange County, no one should take it for granted that city treasurers know what they're doing. Especially if they don't know what their portfolio is producing.

McLean St. Six of the 10 sites are in Rosemead, three in Monterey Park and one in Alhambra. The search for a site has created dissension in those cities because of the potential displacement of homes.

The exact purchase price is dependent on a still-to-be-completed valuation of the company.
