According to Pennsylvania statutes, arson is intentionally starting a fire
or explosion, or aiding/ counseling, paying or agreeing to pay another
person to cause a fire, whether on your own property. If the fire endangers
another person or inhabitant, the charges and consequences are much more
severe. If a person inside the building, whether a firefighter or tenant,
dies as a result of the fire, the arsonist can be charged with murder!
Times-Tribune reports South Side residents had to jump from their roof in order to escape
a fire that has left seven local citizens displaced. Luckily, no one was
injured in the blaze or jumping from the roof. Investigators blame the
quick spread of the fire on high winds. No one has been charged in the matter.
