| No Comments

Scene: "Shawn Junjak spent Friday afternoon raking leaves with his 3- and 4-year-old daughters, then stuffing the leaves in three garbage bags that he set behind his garage in south Minneapolis.

At 10:45 p.m., his phone rang with a call from his neighbor: His garage was engulfed in flames, apparently because someone had set the leaves on fire."


On Friday night 17 fires were set within a four hour period in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis.

There were no injuries and no one has been arrested yet reports the Star Tribune.

Most of the fires were set in garages and vehicles but some were also set in dumpsters and to retaining wall reported the Pioneer Press.

The Longfellow neighborhood has been seeing an increase in crime since the summer.

"We've always enjoyed our neighborhood," Shelly Junjak told the Star Tribune. "We're hoping it's just a couple of kids who are just misguided."
