Four of this summer's fires were definitely accidental, but an additional five remain under investigation. As the Boston Herald article notes, "State and federal arson investigators are refusing to tip their hands" about the investigation and which of this summer's fires are considered arson. Doing so could tip off suspects.
So, I'm curious: Somerville residents, are you getting nervous about fires?
I know I recently upgraded a few smoke detectors last week. Have any of you done something similar? Do you get a bit jumpy when you hear sirens? Are you kept up at night?
I've received a few emails from folks, but I'm trying to gauge what the general sentiment is here in Somerville. If fires are on your mind, leave a comment below.
