Homeowners in Orlando are demanding further action after a man set fire to their houses while they were still inside. The incident happened around 6:45 a.m. Tuesday near Terrace Blvd. and Weber St. in Orlando. Surveillance camera captured a man walking up and holding up what appeared to be a lighter, setting flame to the door in multiple spots. The fire began spreading, but the homeowner at the home, Greg Cordner, said a neighbor noticed what was happening and put the fire out. Another neighbor’s home was also victimized. Cordner says things could have been much worse, but a dog woke him and his wife up before they were hurt. The dog is deaf and blind, but still sensed the danger and jumped into action.
