WDIV-TV writes this about yesterday’s arson spree:

Five teens have been arrested in connection with several fires that burned across southwest Detroit on Thursday.

Detroit police said fire crews responded to two fires on Rathbone Street, two on Lane Street and one near Lawndale Street all within hours of each other — starting at about 2 p.m.

A firefighter was hurt, carried off on a stretcher, while battling a fire on Lane Street. The fire started in an abandoned house and garage, catching a vacant duplex next to it on fire as well.
