4132 Cali arson, four days later

If you also happened to be wondering: Seattle Police tell us this morning they have nothing new to report on last Friday morning’s big fire, just that they are “actively investigating” it. Also, they are still choosing not to talk publicly about what evidence they found that led investigators to call it arson. If you have any idea about who’s to blame, or saw anything (as police put it) “even remotely suspicious before, during, or after” — the hotline to call is 800-55-ARSON. (Photo below is one we didn’t get around to posting in the fire aftermath — chillingly charred sign nearby.)

    I saw some guys suspiciously building a condo there the day before

    Thought that it was interesting how little covereage the West Seattle Herald had of this fire – one picture and caption tucked way back in the paper. Virtually no details – and it happened at the end of last week.

    Arson at condo projects are not new in Seattle. I am very surprised the word did not come out sooner for people to come forward with anything they might have noticed. Waiting until a few days after to make a public request just allows more time for security tapes to be erased and peoples memories to faulter, etc. But I guess if someone saw something strange they would have contacted the police regardless of waiting for the ATF to investigate.. it just seems strange to wait days before asking the public to come forward..

Sorry, comment time is over.
