Small group of fires...smells fishy (figuratively)
The boys from Engine House 20 had their hands full last night up in the O'Fallon Park / College Hill neighborhoods: no less than four fires broke out within a four-block radius, starting at 9:45 p.m.

Cpt. Michael Pickett tells Daily RFT that these are the four addresses (only one was occupied, the rest were vacant):

  • 4350 College Avenue
  • 1408 East Prairie
  • 859 Cowan Street
  • 857 Cowan Street

Pickett says investigators were out there this morning looking for clues that might point to arson or some connection between the blazes.
