DEVIL'S NIGHT
Continued from Page 1
were sure the fire was intentionally
started, and were incensed at the ar-
son. All said they supported the cur-
few, especially Cheryl Echols, 20.
"The curfew's a good idea, be-
cause it keeps the little kids out of
trouble," she said. More impor-
tantly, "it keeps the bigs off the
streets, and they're the ones who are
going around burning houses and
petting shit on fire," Cheryl argued..
McIntyre said he was angry that
the police were not cracking down
and enforcing the curfew.
"Right now, there's a curfew ev-
-ery night of the year," McIntyre ex-
plained. "The cops just don't enforce
it."
The Detroit Police Department's
'Public Information Section said
there is a curfew in effect year-round,
for all juveniles beginning at 11:00
,p.m. However, the officer explained
that the regular curfew "is not en-
forced as diligently as the Devil's
Night curfew."
Many on the scene of the fire
were also spectators who had trav-
6lled from long distances for the
event.
Firefighter Ken Rybka drove up
with some friends from Cleveland
"just to see how the firefighters han-
dle the situation." They said they
make the trip up every year for the
Devil's Night spectacle.
Dale Wiltse, a fire safety instruc-
tor from Milford, was also there to
examine the firefighters' techniques;
he, however, had much stronger
}words about the evening's events.
"The firefighters are doing a great

job, but it's a shame people have to
lose their homes because of some-
body's asinine attitude," he said, as
the building burned. "These guys are
out here busting their butts, working
all night, and risking their lives, all
because somebody wanted to light a
fire."
'These guys are out
here busting their
butts, working all
night, and risking their
lives, all because
somebody wanted to
light a fire'
- Dale Wiltse
Milford Fire Fighter
Wiltse said he was using the po-
lice radio in his truck to find the fire
scenes. He said that he had been to
seven fires already that evening, but
had heard of "too many to count" on
the radio.
A police officer on the scene was
slightly more enthusiastic about the
evening.
"This is the sixth fire I've been
to tonight, but that's less than last
year," he said. "Right now, we're
ahead of the game."
10:30, BACK AT THE
POLICE HEADQUARTERS: The
front steps of the Police Station
were fairly deserted by 10:30, as
most of the television reporter had
left, to go on to more glamorous lo-
cations for their live broadcasts.
The police officer on duty in the
gymnasium was turning away re-

Linda Mann, top, who lives next door to the house shown in the picture
to the right, speaking to Channel 7 news last night. The house, located
on the 6500 block of Helen Street on Detroit's East Side, was set on fire

friend were two blocks from home
when they were picked up by the po-
lice - at 5:45, fifteen minutes be-
fore the curfew was to begin.
Even though Smith and his
mother Doris were upset at the cir-
cumstances surrounding Anthony's
incarceration, they both agreed that
the curfew was working.
"It (the curfew) is a good idea,
but they shouldn't have picked me
up before 6:00," the boy said. He
admitted, however, that, had it been
after 6:00, then he "would have de-
served it."
It was getting late, and it was
clear the events of the evening were
winding down. There was little good
news on the radio for the ride back to
Ann Arbor: early reports showed the

year, and some were calling Tuesday
the worst Detroit Devil's night since
1984.
The number of juvenile arrests,
was significantly up from last year,
with a two-day total of 237 (there
were only 160 arrests for all three
days in 1989).
Everyone surveyed, from fire-

fighters to east side residents to an-
gry parents, supported the curfew,
yet it didn't.make much difference.
Detroit was splashed over newspa
pers and news broadcasts across the
country again. As Dale Wiltse, th
firefighter from Milford said, "a curW
few is only as good as those who
obey it."
