Arson most foul

Arson most foul
This beautiful historic home, in my neighborhood, was destroyed by teenage arsonists yesterday in the late afternoon. A senior citizen couple lives there (the husband is wheelchair bound) and were home, but escaped the fire. One of them suffered smoke inhalation, as did 2 firefighters. The couple have lived in the home for 40 years. Two other homes in the neighborhood burned as well, one other by the same arsonists; the third caught fire when an ember flew from the second blaze. Several witnesses saw the kids lighting bushes in the yards on fire.

There is a grocery store kitty corner to the house, and a grocery clerk said the teens were at the store just prior to their alleged crimes, and surveillance cameras recorded them shoplifting.
