2012: SUSPICIOUS FIRES IN CALIFORNIA AND NEW YORK CITY OVER THE HOLIDAYS, UNDER INVESTIGATION

02 Jan

This holiday weekend was filled with smoke and flames.  First, suspcious fires blazed out of control in California, near Hollywood.  Nearly 41 cars went up in flames, which in some cases, set buildings on fire.  Arson is suspected and a $60,000 reward is being offered for the capture and arrest of the person (s) responsible.  

Flames kept blazing when police authorities reported three Molotov cocktails were thrown at an Islamic center in New York City, yesterday.  The NYFD was called to the Imam Al-Khoei (al-HO’-ee) Foundation building in Queens on Sunday night around 9pm.  The fire was quickly extinguished and luckily no injuries were reported.  This fire may also be linked to fires at a nearby deli and two residential homes.  They believe these fires are also linked to arson.

These suspicious fires are not a good start to the New Year.  Police authories are investigating the holiday fires, and California police are currently questioning a man who they believe may be involved. 

Why would anyone want to set fires, risking the lives of innocent people?

CALI UPDATE 1/2/12:  11 MORE FIRES REPORTED THIS MORNING; TOTAL OF 55 FIRES NOW RECORDED.  3 SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY IS BEING QUESTIONED.
