Arson stirs memories of boy’s death from meth-related fire at west side home
INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 15, 2014) – Someone intentionally set a west side home on fire Monday morning.
Witnesses saw some kids run away from the home at South Belmont and Washington Street. Indianapolis Fire Department crews were dispatched around 11:15 a.m. and had the fire under control in about 30 minutes.
Her son, 7-year-old Dreydon, was trapped on the second floor and died. Rogers eventually pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent.
She was sentenced to four years in prison last December.
