Elderly Woman Mad About No Shopping Carts Starts Strip Mall Fire

Elderly Woman Mad About No Shopping Carts Starts Strip Mall Fire

“Seventy-five firefighters were called to the three-alarm fire”

This story is from a few days ago, but I couldn’t pass it up. A 64-year-old woman started a fire at a Dollar Tree Store in Kent, WA because the Dollar Tree Store did not have any shopping carts:

Several businesses in the strip mall at 23406 Pacific Highway S. in Kent were destroyed in the fire. The roof of the building collapsed after the fire erupted around 3 p.m. Sunday.

According to court documents, the woman “became upset about there being no shopping carts at the Dollar Tree Store.” She left the store, returned shortly afterward and told employees she was going to burn the store down. The woman then went into an aisle where cards and party supplies were and then left the store, telling employees the store was on fire.

Employees found a fire and attempted to extinguish it, but were unsuccessful.

“The defendant had stayed at the location of the fire and was apparently taking pictures and video of the fire as it continued to burn,” the documents said. “The defendant was found to have a lighter on her person and a lighter in her purse.”

Nobody was hurt. Seventy-five firefighters were called to the three-alarm fire.

Gee, I wonder who the woman voted for earlier this month…

No picture of the suspect, so I think we’re talking about Obama’s aunt here.

    From the linked article,”…The King County Prosecutor’s Office charged Linda Katherine Poplawski with first-degree arson. Bail was set at $225,000….”

    Obama voter perhaps, but with that name probably not an ‘aunt’…

Just a word to the wise, for those of you without little old Eastern European grannies: NEVER piss them off. I mean, never. They’re insane.
