Richmond Fire Investigators Go Door To Door, Looking For Answers

After three arsons in a week's span, fire investigators in Richmond went door to door asking neighbors for help.

A historic building at the corner of Main Street and Parrish Avenue in Richmond was torn down two weeks ago, after three suspected arsons at the building.

Since then, fire investigators have not been able to get any leads in the case. On Monday, they left flyers for neighbors hoping someone saw something suspicious on the nights of the arsons.

The building was home to the Woman's Club of Richmond.

Investigators say it is unusual to go to such extremes to find suspects, but they say it's also unusual to have three fires at one building.

    I don't believe it is a "government" inside job, but I do agree that if you look close by... the answer is right there, or should I say "left" instead of right. It is just a matter of doing enough investigating and putting enough pressure on people. Several attempts to purchase that structure and the house three lots to the left have been made. The latter was finally achieved even though it still advertises a photography business. Because there was no guarantee that the house would not be torn down or preserved as an historic site, the club would never sell. Perhaps they were seen as standing in the way of progress or holding out. Did "someone" take matters into their own hands?

    a firefighter was injured while fighting this fire. she will not be able to work for 6-8 weeks. she is also an eku student and aerobics instructor. the person(s) who did this really need to be caught and charged with arson AND wanton endangerment.

    Try looking at who will profit from its destruction. Wether directly of by increasing their own property values close by. 3 fires in 1 week with no suspects sounds like such a inside goverment job. They need to call in out of state investigators.
