Police say Homewood motorcycle hit by arsonists again

A Homewood motorcycle club that was set on fire about a year ago was again torched by an arsonist early Tuesday, Pittsburgh fire investigators said.
The one-alarm blaze was reported about 2:30 a.m. at the Sin City Deciples Motorcycle Club in the 8000 block of Frankstown Avenue. Investigators said it was intentionally set by someone who poured gasoline throughout the building. The same building was set ablaze on June 7, 2011 by someone who threw an object, possibly a Molotov cocktail, into one of its windows. The building had been used largely as a storage facility since then, and investigators estimated the damage from Tuesday's fire at about $10,000, a total loss.
Investigators are not sure whether the fire is connected to a blaze earlier this month at the former clubhouse of the New Brotherhood Motorcycle Club in the 7300 block of Frankstown Avenue. The group had been evicted from the building in the days before the fire, which has been ruled an arson.
