09/13/10 89 W, 1 I - + 6 - 3 Another Vacant Home Burns in Clayton

As this WRAL story reports, it's the eighth suspicious fire since October. Two of those fires also occurred in the Glen Laurel area, where this morning's fire damaged a vacant home at 45 Middlecrest Way. The fire is being treated as suspicious, because of the early hour that it started. The house was under construction, and which was the case of many of the prior fires. Police are offering over $10,000 for information that leads to locating those responsible.

Does this posting read a little better now? That’s because the lovely Mrs. Blogger passed along the following edits.

~ because of the early hour that it start (‘started’)
~ which was case of many of the prior fires (insert ‘the’ before ‘case’)
~ leads to locking those responsible (change ‘locking’ to ‘locating’)
~ it’s eighth suspicious fire since October (did you mean for ‘it’s’ to be plural?)

Yup, I definitely need to spend more time proofreading!
