Sunday, December 16, 2007House almost set on fire by arsonist twice!
My house was almost set on fire by an arsonist twice in two days. This time, he poured gas on my car and was in the process of lighting a match when I caught him, when I smelled gas. All I saw was a tennis shoe, and the flame of a lighter.
The cops have not done one thing, I'm scared, and need any help we can get. Please, if anyone can, get people's attention about this. Anyone, everyone, the media, the newspaper, friends, anyone! My house was almost set on fire twice, and I am really scared! Please read the complete story here. House almost set on fire Twice
