KTVA Interview With Arson Suspect Before Arrest
KTVA interviewed Jenae Collins and her boyfriend on Thursday, shortly after the fire
Jenae Collins: They just raised the rent, came by, knocked on our door and raised the rent
John MacClarence: It's not a great place.
Reporter: What’s next?
John MacClarence: I do not know. I do not know if I have to give my dog to Friends of Pets. And I do not know. I do not have the resources now to do anything. I had an eight-and-a-half-foot marlin that was worth about four grand that I was going to try to sell on Craigslist to try to deal with this situation I'm going through right now, and now I just don't even have anything. So I don't know what's next.
Jenae Collins: Well, we have each other. anyway.
(MacClarence kisses Collins on cheek)
Jenae Collins: We have Zoggy.
At least we're still sucking air. I can say that much. I inhaled a whole lot of smoke, you know.
Reporter: You need to get checked out or anything?
Jenae Collins: Maybe. I’m not really sure what I'm going to do at this moment. I'm just trying to, like, deal with the present situation.
John MacClarence: I don't know what to do. I don't have renter's insurance, or anything of that nature.
Jenae Collins: I'm hoping I can just get some clothes to wear. (Laughs.) That would be nice.
