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.
The dangerous tradition of setting fires runs from Oct. 29-31. We’ll be providing live updates until Saturday afternoon, when the city is holding a press conference on the fires.
Here is a fire map that we will update all night and morning. The map represents all structure fires since midnight October 30.
