Kendrah Smith Fire Victim: “I would say 12 because around 1 o’clock when they called me everything was already burnt to the ground. They told me the fire start from my room and I didnt have anything left on in there when I left out so I don’t know but they told me that it could be an arson that somebody set it because we don’t have any other problem electrically there.
