Fox2Detroit Reports that another house that is part of the Heidelberg Project on Detroit’s east side burned early Sunday morning.
The “Taxi House,” which is located on Mount Elliot Street near Elba Place is the latest house to burn in a recent string of fires.
The Heidelberg Project has boosted security in the area following the suspicious fires that started last year.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
The Heidelberg Project released the following statement Sunday morning on their Facebook page:
We just broke the news to Tyree that another Heidelberg home had been set on fire overnight, marking the twelfth time an art installation in the two-block area has been and primarily wooden construction.
We are thankful for the hard work of the Detroit Fire Department to contain and extinguish the blaze before the entire structure was engulfed. As of now, we don’t know much about the fire and are still trying to learn as much as we can.
This fire comes only one year after a string of arson attacks destroyed four HP homes in less than one month. As we have been taking time to reflect on that chaotic period, we have been repeatedly reminded of the love we received from all of you. Thank you all for your support as we continue to face this negative force; spirits are high. We know one thing better than ever: ‘You can’t burn a vision.’
