In 2010, a series of arsons on Garden Street in Mong Kok resulted in a three-degree fire affecting 29 ground shops and 49 stalls. Later, the arsonist surnamed Jiang admitted to venting with a lighter for greed, and was eventually sentenced to 6 years and 4 months in prison. 12 years later, some people burned garbage cans in Yanqing Building in San Po Kong many times, suspected that someone would repeat the mistake of arson again, and was locked by the police and arrested for arson after committing the crime last night (12th).
At that time, the fire alarm left scars in the hearts of the stall owners on Huayuan Street, and now they avoid mentioning sad things: "Well, it's good to say, everyone is so sad, and I remember my dreams." Some stall owners were surprised that the madmen set fire again.

The stall owner who sold bags on Huayuan Street could only watch the stall burned out in the whites of his eyes, and said excitedly: "I don't have enough money to bury and bury the money!" Recalling the fire alarm back then, she sighed: "Well, it's good to say, everyone is so sad, and I remember my dreams." Regarding the madman's suspicion of committing another crime after being released from prison, she bluntly said: "You should be caught!"
In addition, the stall owner who sold women's underwear recalled that in the middle of the night, someone called her to inform her that there was a fire in the stall, and she immediately arrived by taxi, but the fire department did not allow her to enter and push away the goods, and in the end, she could only watch the goods go to fire, pointing out that at that time, without taking into account the goods and rebuilding the stalls, the loss was "10,8 (yuan)". When she learned that the arsonist had reappeared, she couldn't help but exclaim, "Scared! Hmm? Exaggeration!"
As for the owner of the stall selling masks, he recalled that after the fire alarm, the entire stall was burned down. In addition, the stall collapsed due to the fire, and all the goods were pressed and could not be retrieved. She pointed out that since then, each stall has been separated by a distance according to the instructions of FEHD, and at the same time, when the stalls of the entire Garden Street are closed at night, all the goods will be packed up and no longer left in the stalls.
