Group takes responsibility in statement. Arsons that destroyed two new homes, and attempts at several others this week, were the work of the environmental extremist group the Earth Liberation Front, a statement released by the group claims. The ELF “press office” has not received direct communication from the arsonists, but “a note found at the site of one the fires was signed ‘ELF’ and reportedly contained statements condemning suburban developments,” the statement reads. “In absence of other information, this note does indicate a claim of responsibility for the fires and fire attempts by ELF activists,” according to the e-mail sent to the media.
