greenpoint fire alibi

A guy has come forward who says that the man arrested for starting the GTM fire was with him in upstate NY on the day of the blaze.

It's in the Daily News

Also, a cat who survived the fire, Smokey (awww), is looking for a home. He is presently at BARC. Someone take him home!

Smokey's Story.
