05/24/09 2 Arson Fires Destroy Houses In New Castle
Date and Time:
Shortly after 4 a.m. this morning, a fire completely destroyed a house on New Castle’s East Side. The vacant house at the corner of Ray and Pearl Streets, was totally ablaze when firemen arrived on the scene. The fire quickly grew to two alarms. While firemen were still dowsing hot spots around seven a.m. at the Ray Street address, a fire broke out at a house on Crawford Ave. Someone set fire to the outside of the structure. This area has seen many fires in the past but has been relatively "quiet" recently.
