Okay let me be the first to say I jumped to the wrong conclusion that this was another fake victim story. The man's neighbor confessed to setting the fire out of jealousy that he did not pass the training course to become a volunteer firefighter.
I will not be so quick to pass judgment next time!

Sorry to burst your bubble but racism is not alive and well in America in 2016.
South Africa? Yes
South America? Yes
We actually have laws against discrimination. The racism you people on the left always "expose" are rare isolated cases in a country of 500 million people of every race religion and creed. Most of the time the perpetrator is the same race as the victim.
Not saying this firefighter wasn't a victim of racism...
I'm just saying actual real racism is very rare and I will reserve my comments till more can be brought to light on this story.
The OP and ones feeding this fire will feel really foolish if it was just an electrical fire or something...
North Tonawanda police Capt. Thomas Krantz said at a news conference that the suspect, Matthew Jurado, 39 — who lives across the street from Walker — admitted having set the fire because he'd recently been "removed" from the Gratwick Hose Volunteer Fire Company.
