    Be careful pointing fingers…you know everyone in that area sticks together, and if you don’t have proof, I wouldn’t put it in print. I heard the Fire Marshall closed the case and it was ruled an Act of God….plus I also heard the home owner was elderly with no home insurance. If it were me… I would Butt Out.

    Reading the headline and story before reading these comments – my thought was the Apartment thugs enjoy being arsonists.

    Could be some connection here and may have been their hideout so they burned it down to destroy any evidence.
