New Year blaze doesn’t raze . . . at least entirely

We'll end today’s blotter with yet more drug-related New Year mayhem, as the yearly uptick in fires got an assist from an addict in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district.

Police offered no clues to his motives, but blamed drugs for the incident in which a 27-year-old set fire to his mother’s home on Saturday.

Despite a fair amount of damage, the house wasn’t completely razed thanks to the timely arrival of fire fighters.

Four trucks were necessary to put out the blaze. The suspect is now being held at the district police station.
