Third Arson Where Two Gay Clubs Torched

(Fresno, California) Investigators spent Monday probing through the
ruins of a third business destroyed by fire only steps from where two
gay clubs have mysteriously burned over the past month.

The most recent fire broke out at Bail-U-Out Bonds. What makes this
fire different from the other two, fire officials say, is that the
business is not gay owned.

Other than that it appears all three fires were set by the same person
or persons.

The spate of arsons has gay leaders in Fresno concerned. Even though
the latest fire was not in a gay business they believe someone may be
targeting the gay community.

Earlier this month a fire at The Dance, formerly the Fresno Express,
caused $20,000 damage. On Sept. 26 fire broke out at the site of North
Tower Circle, a few blocks away. That fire resulted in damage estimated
at $375,000.
