Live blog: Detailed look at every fire during Angels’ Night 2014

We are blogging details of every fire during Angels’ Night tonight to gauge Detroit’s response and the severity of the arsons. The idea is to bring you a transparent glimpse of the most notorious night of arsons in the country and the impact of the understaffed fire department.

Here is a fire map that we will update all night and morning. The map represents all structure fires since midnight October 30.
