Cunningham Avenue fire seen as suspicious

NEW CASTLE — A New Castle fire marshal is investigating the cause of a blaze that damaged a home on Cunningham Avenue over the weekend.

Firefighters said the blaze, which started on the back porch of the house at 1112 Cunningham Ave., was deemed suspicious.

City firefighters were called at 1 a.m. Saturday. They said the home is owned by Margaret Moses, who was at home with her son at the time flames broke out.

No one was injured as a result of the fire, and crews were at the scene for about two hours.

Firefighters said there were no particular problems fighting the blaze, which had spread into the home from the porch. But damage was estimated at $40,000.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
