Thanks to Glenn Usdin of Command Fire Apparatus for sending me what is among the most remarkable videos I’ve seen in 10-years of publishing STATter911.com.
The video shows a woman using a gasoline can as she sets fire to a rooming house in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. According to news reports, this ran live on Facebook as it happened.
At least two people were inside when the fire was set. The video shows one getting ouut through a window. The other, a 72-year-old man, does not exit. Neighbors try unsuccessfully to get inside to reach the man. At least one firefighter was hurt during the fire.
Police said the fire was started at about 7:30 p.m. Friday in a rooming house at 12th and Wright streets.
The victim was identified Saturday as Willie Greer.
A woman who was using Facebook Live caught the start of the fire on video. You can see a woman smash a window, pour gas inside the home and start the house on fire.
Police are looking for woman who set the fire.
