Hereford House arson evidence detailed in first day of trial

Evidence of arson was so pervasive at the Hereford House that the fire chief at the time, Smokey Dyer, called for federal assistance even before firefighters had begun to clean up. Dyer wrapped up the first day of testimony in the trial of three men accused of conspiracy, arson and fraud in the Oct. 20, 2008, blaze that destroyed the Kansas City dining landmark.
