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,” Nuzzi said. “Somebody’s lives, for what?”
The fire was set at about 3 a.m. Saturday morning and burnt out before reaching the house where Nuzzi and three other family members were sleeping inside.
