South Philly door fires ruled as arson

January 26, 2008 3:16:13 PM PST
An arson task force is now investigating a string of door fires that happened in South Philadelphia. In the past two months, four fires have been set to the front doors of occupied homes. Fire investigators are asking neighbors to be on heightened alert since this is probably the work of an arsonist.

Firefighters are also taking this opportunity to remind homeowners to check to see if they have working smoke detectors.

Although there has been plenty of damage, thankfully, no one has been hurt.
