Texas woman sets Bible on fire, damages duplex for $ 150,000
Pop quiz … what’s the best-selling book of all time?
It is probably not surprising that the title belongs to the Bible. Some researchers go further saying that in addition to being the most read book of all time, the Bible is also the most forbidden book, the most debated book and the most burnt book of all time.
Let us draw our attention to this last title because it goes directly into our history on an incident that happened last weekend in San Antonio. The event involves the Bible, a fire, and what some might describe as healthy karma.
According to a fox story 29 in the town of Alamo, two duplexes suffered heavy fire damage after a fire in the yard got out of hand. Witnesses say a woman went to her yard behind her house and set a Bible on fire. Somehow this fire made contact with his house and then spread to the adjoining duplex. The damage was estimated at over $ 150,000.
Authorities said the fire was reported around 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning. When the woman realized that the fire was spreading to the houses, she knocked on the neighbor’s door to alert them to the fire. Fortunately, no one was injured, including several pets who live in the duplex. However, due to the extensive damage, the houses will be uninhabitable for some time.
The identity of the woman who allegedly started the fire was not disclosed in the report, nor was the reasoning for setting the Bible on fire in the report. The woman was taken into custody by San Antonio police officers.
