About Around Town: Every week day, we'll provide you with a scene from around Easton. Let us know what you think about the scene in our comments section!
The restaurant formerly known as the Carriage House and the Diplomat burned to the ground in November. Thursday, it sits as a pile of rubble overlooking Route 138.
Fire Officials determined that the fire was intentionally set, and it has been linked to a string of arson-related fires in the area over the course of the fall and early winter. Just last night, two were arrested in West Bridgewater for setting fire to a commercial building, according to the Boston Globe. Police are investigating whether or not the alleged arsonists are linked to the other fires on the South Shore.
The building in Easton was being used as a storage shed for owners Thomas DeCouto and Mark Perron of D&P Real Estate Management Corp.
