A man says someone has lit eight fires outside his home. He thinks a neighbor did it. He and his neighbor have not been getting along.

These neighbors have been arguing about this man's children. The children seem to be doing things the neighbor does not like. He called the police.

Other neighbors say the arguments have gotten worse since then. Many small things outside the man's home have been set on fire. He is very mad.

Police say they know about the disagreement between the two neighbors. They cannot arrest anyone for the fires. They do not have enough proof showing who started them.

The man says he wants to get along with all of his neighbors. He hopes someone can help them solve the problems with the children. Hopefully the arguments will stop.
