Jamaica Plain Fires Cause Alarm

This week's fire at a real estate office in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston is the latest in a string of fires in the area either ruled as or suspected of being arson.

Since July of 2005, four fires have ripped through businesses here, and while Mayor Tom Menino has said publicly that there is no information to suggest they're connected, many business owners in the neighborhood are on edge.

We speak with Kathy Mainzer, co-owner of the Milky Way Lounge and Lanes, about the mood among business owners.
