Seventh fire in Forest Hills destroys home
After SIX mysterious fires happened over the course of a month in Forest Hills, someone allegedly taunted the community and police officers by setting another house on fire late Wednesday night.
The home, located in the vicinity of 67th Avenue and 108th Street, was yet another house under construction. While home owners have been doing repairs for some time, the fire left almost everything to ashes. The Daily News is reporting that neighbors saw a man jump over the fence of the house shortly before the house was engulfed in flames.
Some reports also claim that investigators found a note with a riddle left for them by the suspected arsonist. The riddle hasn’t been released to the public.
The homeowner of the latest fire, who wished to remain anonymous, told CBS New York that she felt under attack, adding “it’s some kind of sort of also terrorist attacks going against Bukharan Jews.”
