“Someone tried to burn my house down! Price of fighting for Freedom,” wrote Pawlowski. “Please, pray for our enemies!”
Artur Pawlowski, the Polish immigrant to Canada who was recently arrested for holding church services despite orders from the government to cease religious worship due to unscientific COVID-19 lockdowns and went viral after throwing out police and health officials while calling them Nazis and gestapos, says someone tried to burn down his home in a Facebook post containing video of the blaze.
“Someone tried to burn my house down! Price of fighting for Freedom,” wrote Pawlowski. “Please, pray for our enemies!” Pawlowski uploaded video showing at least five firefighters outside what appears to be a residence. Smoke billows in the background, lit by the lights from emergency response vehicles. The fire appears to have been started at a shed outside Pawlowski’s house, and fire fighters are seen removing wood to better access the flame. Multiple police officers are seen in the video, including one who huddled with fire fighters before taking photos of the damage. When police asked for a statement, a woman – ostensibly Pawlowski’s wife – is heard telling the police officer that she discovered the fire when her neighbor alerted her. “Half an hour ago my neighbor was putting the garbage, nobody was here,” the woman told police.
