Date and Time:
"Itís happened again". Another suspicious house fire, this time on Oak Street. This fire comes just hours after residents and New Castle city officials meet to discuss ways to bring these arsons to an end. Neighbors were awakened shortly after 3 a,m. to the 13th suspected arson fire of the year, the second time for this home. A family living in the home next to the fire had just gone to bed around 1:30 a.m. A mother, father, two children and a dog escaped from their home and watched as firemen poured water onto their house to keep it from catching fire. Fire Chief Tom Maciarello said the fire was burning in several locations when they arrived. A decision was made to let the house burn while protecting the house next door. No one yet has been arrested for the continuing rash of fires in New Castle.
