ATLANTA, May 25 (Reuters) - The FBI says it is investigating "intentional" fires that erupted this week at two Atlanta-area women's clinics, one of which performs abortions.Intentional fires are also known as arson...
"FBI-Atlanta is seeking information regarding intentional fires," the agency said in a statement.
It said the first of the blazes occurred on Sunday morning after someone broke out the front window of a gynecological office and set a fire inside the building.
"An incendiary substance was present," the FBI said in its statement. "Laboratory results are pending."
On its website, the doctor's office told patients that "the office sustained severe damage."
- Amazon will finally pay for air conditioning at its warehouse facilities that reach a triple-digit heat index. No, really. Here's how they used to handle it:
"During summer heat waves, Amazon arranged to have paramedics parked in ambulances outside" in anticipation of workers succumbing to the blistering-hot conditions, the Morning Call wrote. On one June day alone, 15 workers collapsed from the heat.
The investigative report prompted an inspection by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, after which the company added fans and louvered doors for ventilation, and passed out water and cold snacks on hot days. Workers told the Morning Call the measures didn't do enough to make the extreme heat bearable.
