Detroit is holding their annual Angels’ night again this year in an effort to prevent arson fires in the city.
From Oct. 29-31 this month, there will be strict curfews in the city. Between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., teens and children 17 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in the city.
Parents who do not accompany their children are subject to a $500 fine and 90 days in jail.
Typically, there are 20-25 fires a day in Detroit. Last year, there were 94 during the three day Angels’ Night period.
Signs are going up in the Detroit area just west of the Southfield Freeway and north of Joy Road with three foot wide eyes on them. The signs state, “This Building is Being Watched: Stop Halloween Arson”.
Residents are encouraged to keep a lookout for suspicious activity and to call 911 if they spot something.
