The grinch is alive and well and apparently he likes to play with fire. Rachel Feaster says her family's Christmas nearly went up in flames. She'd just gotten home from dinner with her mom and two sisters when she noticed the strong odor of gasoline in the house. There were puddles of gasoline everywhere. There are signs of forced entry, a back door was kicked in. The fire department pulled the plug on utilities to prevent a fire and investigators are searching for clues.

The would-be arsonist may have been scared off when a neighbor knocked on the door before the family came home. If you have any information, call Warren police.
