    what’s going on with the fire that happened on Memorial day. that started around 8p.m. I knew that person. is it arson or something else. it always seems that when I know someone that you air on your news station nothing else is said. there has been a lot of people mentioned that I knew but nothing else is said about. so what’s the scoop!!!!!!
