DETROIT (WWJ) – For a second night, thousands of volunteers will patrol the streets of Detroit Sunday for Angel’s Night … working to keep the number of arson fires down.
A spokesman for Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, Dan Lijana, says things were pretty quiet Saturday night.
“Last night, we got the report in that there were 18 structural fires , so an average Saturday night is typically 26 fires, so obviously we’re under the average and pleased with … the results.”
He says Mayor Bing will visit a couple of fire stations and with some volunteers Sunday night.
“He’ll be out patrolling tonight, so hopefully, he’ll get to, to see a lot of people and talk to them about, you know, what they’re seeing and thank them for all that they’re doing,” said Lijana.
Lijana says they hope they get a lot of volunteers the rest of the Halloween period.
