News reports indicate there have been at least 30 suspicious structure and vehicle fires Detroit over the past day, with 11 occurring overnight. BoxAlarmDetroit has video from what turned out to be three separate firegrounds in about a three block area as six vacant dwellings burned last night starting around 9:45 PM. The first dispatch was for Hasse and Nancy. Here’s some of the description with the video:
First arriving company reported three dwellings going, and a short time later, reported an additional fire two blocks away in a dwelling on Lamont Street. A second box was dispatched to the scene; while enroute, a third box was requested for another vacant dwelling burning on Healy Street, located in between the two fires already dispatched. Due to miscommunications it was nearly 30 minutes before a third box alarm was sent for the fire on Healy.
One of the vehicle fires overnight had a woman inside who had been shot to death. A man was also wounded in the incident.
Below is news chopper video of another fire around 6:20 this morning near I-94 and Van Dyke.
