Historic Leigh Cottage at Decatur Children's Home BurnsDecatur Metro | November 2, 2007
AJC and UMCH
A teenage boy, angry at another, set fire to his room last night, sending Leigh Cottage on the campus of the United Methodist Children’s Home up in flames. Thankfully, no one was injured. The AJC has details…
“All of the kids have got to go shopping tomorrow because they lost everything,” Cochran said. “Plus, there’ll be some counseling going on. They’ve got to be shook up.”
11 Alive says that the teen has been taken into custody.
