Disgruntiled Pistons fans burn down homes

http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/4648189/detail.html


Three newly-renovated Highland Park homes were destroyed overnight in what
may be a case of arson, Local 4 reported.

Wayne County sheriff's deputies took three adults and one minor into custody
who were seen running from the burning vacant homes on Winona Street, just
east of Woodward.

The minor was released after questioning, the station reported.

The fire comes just as Highland Park is working to rebuild from a blaze that
destroyed three homes and left six people homeless on May 13.

Glen Moore, who lives across the street from two of the homes that were
engulfed in flames early Friday, had one question for the persons who may
have been responsible for the blaze.

"I would ask them, 'Why?'" Moore said.

Sources told the station that the fire, which started shortly after the
Pistons were defeated by the San Antonio Spurs, may have been set by
disgruntled fans.

And to think that ABC suspended Jimmy Kimmel last year for jokingly
predicting something like this would have happened.
