In the morning on March 29, a house fire broke out in Xianju Village, Zhejiang province. The home’s residents, an elderly couple asleep at the time, were killed in the blaze. A netizen on Tianya [a popular Chinese forum] claimed that someone had approached the couple several days earlier asking them to move so a parking lot could be built where they live. This led netizens to believe this was a case of arson and that the couple were killed for refusing to relocate. Officials claim no accelerants were found on the scene, and emphasized that the location already had a large parking lot nearby.
