Arson!

I thought today was suppose to be "Lucky" Friday?!?!  My early morning took a crazy turn as I was leaving work at 3:20 am.  As I was leaving I noticed smoke in my car windows.  I opened the door thinking it was maybe the charger burning?!?  Kept checking/called GW & 911.  Then I opened the door behind the drivers seat I noticed everything was burning- then it burst into flames.  I was trying to save important items (not a wise idea, I know)...but then decided I better shut the doors to try to contain it...  Next thing you know the cops, firemen, canine unit & investigators where on the seen... They believe it was arson (maybe kids or druggies looking for $) as the same thing happened right before I called in just a couple doors down behind the shop.  They sent some things into the BCA(?)...  They said it easily could have been on fire for a few hours....  Luckily, my car didn't blow up & catch the shop on fire (about 3 feet away)!  Still processing what happened...  Who would do this?!?!?  Lost a lot of "good stuff" from bolts of fabric, wool, models, new camera & gear...as I have a on the go studio in my car etc... Such a bummer!

That is just plain creepy. It is hard to imagine who would do that. So sorry about the loss of your treasures.

Nancy said...

Wow...so sorry for your day and the loss you endured as a result. Glad you are OK, there are so many bad things happening in this country.

That is so sad! And what a frightening experience for you!
Luckely you discovered it before it got worse and nobody was hurt.

OMG! I am so sorry this happened to you and that someone else down the road too. I'm glad you had the presence of mind to contain it and no one was hurt. A small blessing, though it'll be a headache to handle the matter of what you did lose. Feel safe.

What a scary experience! I'm glad no one was hurt and that the fire didn't spread. This may be a good time to check the coverage of your insurance policies in case the firebug strikes again!

I'm so sorry this happened to you! It's hard to understand what kind of person would be so destructive to another's belonging--ridiculous! Obviously, if they were looking for valuables, they really missed the boat leaving behind bolts of fabrics and models. I hope the culprits are found before they injure someone.

I cannot get over how someone could do this to another person. Clearly no respect or moral values. I hope they find who is responsible and they are punished. I know no amount of insurance can replace what you lost but hopefully it can come close. I am thankfull you found it before you lost your shop too. I often keep things in my car i shouln't either so this is a bit of a lesson for us all. Hoping things will look up for you as you get all this sorted out.

Although it is definitely an awful experience to go through. Think of the positive - no one was hurt.

So sorry,
Charlotte

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I am so sorry to hear about the fire. That is unreal! No, not a good way to start the day. Glad everyone is OK though, that is a blessing.

Oh my goodness! People are so mean and criminal. Since the police sent some items to the BCA (Bureau of Criminal Apprehension) they must think that this awful act was indeed intentional. So glad that you weren't hurt.
