A spokesman for the Saginaw Police Department is reporting that there were no arsons, or other violent crime, in Saginaw last night.
The night before Halloween, called Angel's Night or Devil's Night, was known in the past for a high number of arsons. The name came out of Detroit, where at its peak, 800 fires were set in one night in 1984.
This year, however, was very different, according to Detective Sergeant Reginald Williams II, "No shootings, no homicides, no violent crimes, and no arsons."
The Saginaw police went on to credit volunteers, parents, and various law enforcement agencies for keeping the city safe overnight.
