The fire is believed to be the 11th such incident in recent weeks on the Inishowen Peninsula and Garda believe the fires could be linked.Julie revealed how she had to take her three children aged 8, 3 and 1 out of bed for fear the fire was going to spread to her home.Julie said “These fires have to stop. What is it going to take? Someone is going to be killed,” she pleaded.Julie revealed how two of those whose house nearly caught on fire after a car was set ablaze were asleep in their beds when the attack happened at 3.30am. “One of those was a pensioner who struggles to walk. Someone knows somewhere who is doing this,” added Julie.Acting Fire Chief Bobby McMenamin has appealed to whoever is setting the fires to stop before someone is seriously hurt.Gardai have also appealed for anyone who knows anything to contact them as part of their ongoing investigation.EndsTERRIFIED MUM PLEADS WITH ARSONISTS TO STOP AFTER FAMILY CAUGHT IN FIRE DRAMA was last modified: August 25th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:arsonbuncranaJulie Cookelast_img
