Pinks Alley House Burns; Was It Arson?

Alejandro Cowo

A small house fire in Pinks Alley on Tuesday afternoon destroyed the contents of a cement structure belonging to Lorna Wade.  According to twenty-three-year-old Dawn Higinio, she was asleep inside the house when she heard someone calling her name.  When she woke up out of her slumber she smelled smoke and immediately noticed that a sofa inside the living room was on fire.  Police initially classified the incident as a case of arson, but they are yet to determine the cause of the fire.

“In reference to that arson, it was just a minor sofa and a table that were damaged, in reference to that arson.  We cannot say it’s an arson yet because the fire department is still investigating.  It is almost completed but they have mentioned to us that it could have possibly been an electrical problem, not any arson.  You have to understand that arson is when somebody actually lights up a building and when it comes to a house fire, there are many causes for a house fire which have to be determined by the fire department.”
