Arson victim singed, ringed and unhinged 

Are San Francisco firefighters ding-dong ditching people? Probably not.

However, an arson victim in the Glen Park area last weekend said he didn’t see anyone outside his home after officials with the Fire Department knocked on his door early Saturday morning.

The resident of the 100 block of Monterey Boulevard told police he was surprised to hear a knock on his door at such an early hour, but when he looked out the window, he didn’t see anyone.

“The victim saw a cab,” police at Ingleside station said.

The resident figured the cabbie had the wrong address, so he didn’t answer the door.

A few minutes later, police said, his doorbell rang again, and once again he couldn’t see anyone outside his home. This time, the cab wasn’t there. Still, the man did not answer his door and went to sleep, police said.

The next morning, he found a note from the SFFD telling him that the inside of his vehicle, which was parked in his driveway, had been burned and that firefighters tried to ring his doorbell to contact him, police said.

Police are investigating the blaze as arson.
