Teen admitted she set Hostel ablaze, Fire Service agrees it’s arson

The findings of investigations into Saturday evening’s fire at the girls’ dorm of the Youth Hostel in Rockville at Mile twenty-one on the Western Highway confirm that it was a case of arson. The dorm was home to seventeen girls, four of whom were smoking marijuana in a bathroom when the fire started. The Operations Officer at the National Fire Service, Michael Middleton, told News Five that the blaze was indeed deliberately set.

“We found out that this fire was intentionally set by some one of the girls at the Youth Hostel up there at mile twenty one.”

“And it was set how?”

“Whoever did it, they lit a sheet, put it in the roof of the bathroom, the attic, and that is where the fire started and spread throughout the building.  From the statement that they gave us it was actually to burn down the place.”

The police issued a release stating that one of the girls confessed to starting the fire, but so far, no charges have been filed against any of the teens. Fire officials, meanwhile, say that the investigations into the fire on Jane Usher Boulevard on Tuesday morning are inconclusive.

    Case closed. These girls are clearly unreformed and display psycological instability which is an indicator of recidivism if they are eventually released back into society. Intensive counseling and a long stint courtesy of the female section at the Hattieville department of (corruptions) might be a proper alternative for the ones involved. But this is just MY opinion.

    Why isn’t she in jail?

    She needs a good whipping with a sash cord soaked in salt water and her behind locked up afterwards. Can’t save people from themselves theses days.Some people were just born to be bad.What will happen to all those other girls now.When its time to rebuild,i would bring her azz out there to help with the manual labor for part of her punishment. Lay cement blocks, dig hole, plumbing,electrical,the works and I bet she won’t try that ish again.

    SHE WILL DO IT AGAIN IF NOT PUNISHED………….then what????

    Agree with Disgusted and Corf; unfortunately some people are hopelessly lost and will never ever be worth anything positive to society and that is the actuality of the reality. This is like being homeless, and you got to homeless shelter, a place that is built and designed to help the homeless, so the homeless man decides to burn down the place or beat up the people who go and volunteer with the serving of food etc. Jacque Fresco, i like your outlook on sociology and society, but one thing you did not factor into your equation, it seems, that whether we like it or not some folks will simply not be able to reform to be of any positive use to society and will simply be ‘obsolete’, this seem to be an inescapable pardox, however another subsidiary of this paradox is: what do you do with the ‘obsoletes’? Well one thing is to try and reform and after a certain point they are either reformed to be a positive part of society or become fertilizer and still become a ‘part’ of society, either way they will be a benefit to society.
