Pasadena arson victim: 'I'm not quite willing to forgive'

forgiveness on Miscellaneous - S. Nicholas Daugherty wipes soot from a bottle of embalming fluid and says the arson fire that burned his Pasadena office could have been worse.

Cases of formaldehyde, bleaching agents and chemical preservatives could have exploded along Mountain Road.

He fears that was the plan of whomever set fire to the embalming room of his funeral home.

“Whoever did this is not right,” he said. “I don’t hate them — I don’t want to carry that burden. But I’m not quite willing to forgive.”

Investigators continue to search for those responsible for the fire at Daugherty Family Funeral Home and Cremation Center. The fire burnt an office in which bodies were prepared for burial, although no remains were damaged. Flames charred the walls and ceiling, burning cremation urns and flags planned for veterans’ graves.
