There’s been some amazing rehabbing going on in the blocks north of Cherokee Street in Benton Park.
Someone, however, has begun to set fire in vacant houses, which has now gutted at least four buildings.
The second picture and the one below were the most recent victims on Friday night, an hour apart.
This beautiful house, which would have fetched top dollar in Benton Park, was being torn down the day I went by, apparently because of the severe damage caused by the fire.
If you know anything about why these fires are happening, please let me know.
