The North Tonawanda volunteer firefighter who received a racist letter in his mailbox had his home set on fire.
Kenneth Walker and his family were out of the house at the time of the fire, but their two cats perished.
Kenneth Walker recently received a letter stating he should resign his position at the fire department, “or you will regret it.”
Investigators are not sure yet if the two are connected, but are looking into it.
The FBI is now looking into the case.
