Fairhaven Plagued by Serial Arsonist
FAIRHAVEN -- A fourth major conflagration this month has left residents of Fairhaven anxious. City guards are determined to find the arsonist responsible before more such incidents occur.
Krilauntha and Sons Tannery on Craver Street caught fire shortly after midnight on Mol. Witnesses reported hearing a rush of air and then a low rumble before fire engulfed the building. The flames rapidly spread to three warehouses nearby, turning the area into an inferno. But because of the late hour, the buildings were deserted when the fire started, so no one was hurt.
Fire crews battled the blaze until late morning. A guard captain investigating the scene said the tannery fire bears "significant similarities" to three previous fires in Fairhaven, including:
Tannery owner Vadnir Krilauntha has offered a reward of 3,000 gold coins for information leading to the perpetrator's arrest. This amount, says Krilauntha, represents "just about all the family has left."
