MLive Detroit crime reporter Gus Burns reported, “Detroit officials have reported 66 fires since Midnight Tuesday, 31 of which have been deemed suspicious, likely arson. The heaviest night of fires is traditionally Oct. 30, known as Devil’s night to arsonists and Angels’ Night to the public-private coordinated effort attempting to thwart the efforts of firebugs. Mayor Mike Duggan’s office reports 38 fires on Thursday though midnight, 24 of which were labeled suspicious. That’s’ a reduction by one fire compared to the same period in 2013.”
