Arson Suspected in Massive Jerusalem Forest Fire
Jerusalem Post – While fire fighters extinguish the remnants of a massive inferno in the Jerusalem Forest that resulted in the destruction of five homes and evacuation of two of the capital’s neighborhoods and Yad Vashem, a fire official on Thursday said there was a breakthrough in the investigation.
“We have two major leads and should have answers soon,” said Jerusalem Fire and Rescue Service spokesman Kobe Erez Thursday morning. “One is a group of kids seen running from the site of the fire when it started, and the other is arson. We will know more in the coming hours.”
