Around 7:15AM, it was confirmed that another yet Heidelberg Project home had been set ablaze overnight, marking the twelfth time an art installation in the two-block area has been senselessly burned in only eighteen months. The Taxi House, on Mt. Elliot at the end of Heidelberg Street, now bares marks of arson, but is surprisingly still standing despite its age and primarily wooden construction.
We are thankful for the hard work of the Detroit Fire Department to contain and extinguish the blaze before the entire structure was engulfed. As of now, we don't know much about the fire and are still trying to learn as much as we can.
This fire comes only one year after a string of arson attacks destroyed four HP homes in less than one month. As we have been taking time to reflect on that chaotic period, we have been repeatedly reminded of the love we received from all of you. Thank you all for your support as we continue to face this negative force; spirits are high. We know one thing better than ever: "You can't burn a vision."
