Well, Tuesday night was happnin’  I was walking back from the bar after a late night drink on the eve of the hottest day ever.  At about 12:15, I heard a women yelling, but I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. (Above me, it turns out)  As I passed the last wood frame house on Ballard Avenue, I saw a small fire on the side porch.  I tried to stamp it out, but it was a gasoline fire and my little sandals weren’t cutting it.  The woman, Angelique, came down to the street with the fire extinguisher from her building, and another fellow put the fire out with that.  The fire department and the arson squad soon appeared.  Definitely arson, definitely the FD and police are keeping this quiet.  No publicity, no asking for information.  Do they already have a suspect?
