A victim of arson, Arson Reward Posterthe house burnt to a pile of ashes that night. "Don't bother renewing the fire tag", we had been told, "that house would go up like a tinder box". I was called an hour after the blaze was discovered, drove to the house from St. Louis, and watched it burn for another 12 hours. All that remained was a Franklin stove and a singed, expired fire tag. The arsonist was never caught.
