RE: Fire 12/31/08 – On going fire investigation.
This is a very sorry case and I feel so bad that this really happen for the family and I am very happy no one got hurt or was in the house, but…. I had to go there today (1/3/09) to check this out for myself and this is what came to mind… This is very strange…
I've been seeing a lot lately about the impact of these bailouts to the economy, with many pundits predicting future inflation once the current round of deflation eases as inventories of homes, cars and other goods are absorbed and financial deleveraging continues.
I have also seeing homes being burned to the ground for insurances money lately. This is not the first time I am hearing about homes being burned to the ground. Could this be a home that's been seized by a bank, for non-payment of loans?
After all the family of six living there home on New Year’s Eve? The owner moved in 10 years ago.
Does the brad winner(s) still have his/her job before the fire?
Maybe the Westchester County fire investigators and the Pelham Manor fire chief Joseph Ruggiero should check all this out….
Good work Pelham Manor Fire Dept. and to the Volunteers. in 3 minutes! On New Year’s Eve! GREAT JOB!!!

RE: Pelham Manor Fire New Years Eve at 674 Esplanade Avenue - Pelham Manor.

The Westchester County fire investigators and the Pelham Manor fire chief Joseph Ruggiero should check all this out I was thinking the same thing before reading about it here "insurances money".

You have got to be kidding. This family is devastated. They loved their home. The kids have lost their "treasured" comforts - like the baby's blanket she carried everywhere but to the party that night, or her brother's well-worn stuffed bear. These are not expensive items, but they are irreplaceable. The father still has a very good job. This is not about insurance. This is about a very, very sad accident for which no one knows the cause. I hope it never happens to anyone else.

I can't believe this theory is even being entertained. There is no way this family would have purposely destroyed everything that was dear to them and their kids!...including all their photos documenting every child's event...sporting events, birthdays, births, etc.
