Arson in Spring Valley?
My neighbor’s garage caught on fire while they were out. Fortunately, we were home and saw the smoke and called the fire department. Another neighbor’s camera system captured a person on a bike riding off of the property a few moments before the fire broke out. The fire department determined the cause of the fire as arson.
