Family: Man starts fires over divorce

Saturday, June 09, 2012

Fresno County fire investigators are trying to determine if a man angry over a pending divorce caught two homes on fire.

Fire crews responded to a home on Del Rey near American around 11 p.m. Friday night. Family members told Action News a man caught two homes on fire as retaliation for divorce proceedings.

Everyone inside both homes got out safely, but there was significant smoke damage caused by the second fire.

Firefighters would only say that they responded to two fires last night. Investigators have not determined a cause for either, but they have not ruled out arson.
