Talk about cruel intentions. According to FDNY and several media reports, police are still investigating a suspicious housefire that recently occurred in Queens. That housefire, indeed, now appears to have been intentionally set as accelerant has been found on gloves that were near the home. Some believe that the landlord (living up to fully NY reputation here) was pissed that he couldn’t evict and decided to do the unthinkable.

Media reports show that Eric Chen, who appears to be the owner of 90-31 48th Ave, is now under serious investigation in relation to the crime. Police dogs allegedly found accelerant on three sets of gloves inside of his Toyota Rav4 indicating that the crime may have been premeditated. His phones; recording equipment, and his vehicle were all seized this week by police.
Two men are confirmed dead because of the alleged arson. The incident is being investigated as such as of this time.
