House of Ms.Maudie Atkinson Catches Fire

On one of the coldest nights in many years the house of Ms.Maudie Atkinson catches fire resulting in a disastourous fire causing the house to be nothing but a black hole in the ground. The cause of the fire is unknown, but, the victim believes it started from her lit stove that she was using to keep her plants warm so they wouldn't freeze.

Interviewing Scout about the Fire


During the fire two children named Scout Finch and Jem Finch were watching the fire from not to far away, and while watching Scout had an unexpected visitor.

Scout had been watching the fire when someone put a blanket over her and she didn't even notice it. Scout said, "I guess I was either to tired or too cold, maybe even both. But I never even realized that Boo Bradley had wrapped a blanket around me."
