If anyone has been downtown in the past 36 hours, they most likely saw evidence of at least one of the fires.
The fires, attributed to arsonists, seem to be targeted exclusively at abandoned homes in the Carriage Town, and Grand Traverse neighborhoods. Many are claiming that they are being set in response to the recent layoffs to the fire and police force.
Neighborhood groups are organizing to board up at-risk structures, and holding neighborhood watches for the evenings ahead.
Keep working together guys!
