Nothin’s on Fire … Yet.

Palatine police responded to a residence after a boyfriend reported that his girlfriend was at their house throwing his personal things out on the front yard and lighting them on fire. The boyfriend wasn’t home, so he wanted the police to check to make sure everything was O.K.

Police squads arrived on the scene and said the following …

“Central … on the scene we see clothes on the front yard … nothing on fire, yet.”

But on closer examination after getting out of the police squad, the officer reported …

“I am going to assume that the clothes that were on fire and the Kingsford Lighter Fluid were hers … I am sorry that would be books.”

All this at about 1:30 a.m. on a Thursday morning.
