Oh baby! Arson…!

This is bigger than Falcon Crest, or “Who shot JR?” on Dallas as far as soap-operas are concerned. Multiple suspects, multiple motives…

Wine warehouse fire was arson, police say
Court records show business was mired in partnership feud

Man, oh man, what a catastrophe for the innocent businesses & wine collectors who had bottles in there. If it’s true, the person who set this blaze will gain an instant infamy – perhaps only second in notoriety and severity to murder.


No suspects have been named, and police would not say how the fire was started, nor would they speculate on a motive.

"Right now there are several persons, or people, of interest," said Lt. Lori A. Lee of the Vallejo Police Department.

"It could be dozens, anyone from employees to those who are tenants or have ownership interests, or vintners who are storing their wine there."

Lee said police and fire officials have been deluged with tips, rumors, and innuendo about who had a motive to start the fire.

"It's still premature to say that anyone has been cleared," Lee said. "It's an open investigation. We have investigators filtering out in a number of directions."

I’d hate to be in that guy’s (or gal’s) shoes when they get caught, and odds are, they will get caught.

I am not sure what you mean by "Jewish Lightning". Illuminate those of us who aren't so bright.
