DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit reports 58 fires during the first two days of the three-day Halloween anti-arson watch period officials call Angels' Night.
Mayor Dave Bing's office said Sunday that the 58 fires as of midnight Saturday are eight more than at that point in 2009.
Volunteers are working with city officials on a "Watch Your Block" anti-arson campaign.
The city says 119 fires were reported last year over the three-day period, down from 136 in 2008. More than 800 fires were started in 1984, the height of what then was known as Devil's Night.
Flint firefighters handled eight fires on the night before Halloween, compared with five in the same period last year.
The Flint Journal says seven were in vacant houses and the eighth was in a car.
