Arson in Allston: Vandals Setting Fire to Cars

On Saturday, September 24th, five cars were damaged in three separate but connected fires in Allston. According to Steve MacDonald of the Boston Fire Department, the fires were started in the daylight by a group of mostly students near Ashford and Pratt Street.

MacDonald said there have been eight car fires in Allston over the past month. With the rise in vandalism over the past months, Allston resident have become increasingly concerned about the safety of their properties and selves.
