Heidelberg Clock House fire started moments before security patrol arrived

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Another installation at the Heidelberg Project was destroyed in what officials say is a fire that started by an arsonist.
    
The Heidelberg Project had recently hired security to stop things like this before they happen. We're told last night's fire happened before 10 p.m., moments before the nightly security patrol arrived.

The Clock House was the latest to fall despite a four minute response time from firefighters. Investigators are now calling the fire an arson. This is the eighth fire in eight months at the Heidelberg Project.

The War Room was burned down on Thanksgiving; The Penny House was torched a few days before that and the House of Soul was set on fire in mid November.

The ATF is helping the Detroit Fire Department with the investigation and is also offering a five thousand dollar reward for information leading to an arrest

The art project draws tourists to Detroit from all over the country and the world.
