    Someone set three fires at the family-owned Daily Gazette newspaper in Schenectady, N.Y. It was discovered early this morning. Nobody was hurt and damage was minimal.

    But jeez.

    UPDATE: Apparent arson investigated at Gazette building

    No report on whether it was the same person messing with the bathrooms three years ago.

    On the bright side, it's nice to see the words "fire" and "newspaper" in the same headline and not have it be about yet another massive jobs purge.

    Seriously, though, I live in terror of a fire at our building. Our morgue is in an upstairs room adjacent to a lot of the physical plant. If a fire ever started and spread up there, with almost 40 years of old newspapers ready to serve as kindling at the slightest spark, there'd be no stopping it. I've thought I smelled smoke a couple of times over the years and innediately stopped what I was doing to go check that room. It's always in the back of my mind.
