Police are investigating a string of arsons, targeting Citrus Heights homes with American flags on display. At least four homes were targeted in the Sungarden neighborhood early Saturday morning. So far, police say they don’t know the motive. A charred pole is all that’s left of the American Flag that had been flying outside Marie Nuzzi’s home.
“If it had burned longer it would have caught the house on fire,” Citrus Heights resident Marie Nuzzi said. “Somebody’s lives, for what?”
“It was a nylon flag, so it’s just all this black soot is just on the concrete,” she added.
Here is all that remains of one Citrus Heights resident's flag:
