I really don't get why there seems to be such a communication issue between the emergency services when it comes to arson.  It seems like it doesn't go through the appropriate channels unless there is a loss of life or an inhabited property.  I moved here from within the Five Towns and not so long ago spent months with the unoccupied business next door to mine being targeted by arsonists practically weekly.   My neighbor and I reported fires being set g not actually slight) and the fire service would attend.  We reported smoke, flames, the strong smell of accelerant and the fire service would attend.  My neighbor witnessed the people setting the fire and then bumped into them down the road watching the fire being extinguished.   I can't speak for my neighbour, but I never saw the police attend the fires nor do anything but increase the NOT walk by's.    Until the night that neither my neighbor or I saw the fire being set and by the time the fire service attended the building was engulfed.   Then the police were there to close the road.    I was upset it had been asked to reach that level and I spoke to someone in the fire service who said "I don't know why the police didn't put up Accra camera after so many attempts to burn this place down."    Good ****** questioron.  But it made me wonder if the police were really properly aware of what was going on.  It seemed more like they were treated as isolated incidents rather than a series of targeted attacks. 

So here in Feb, they're seems to be a similar issue.  It's almost as if it's not being escalated because it's "just" vacant buildings due to be demolished or "just" allotments.     It's disappointing if that is the case.  They might feel differently if it was theirs or they lived next door to it.    Even living in the proximity of it is devastating to middle and I wish I had a clue what could be done to bridge that gap in communication.
