Popular Twitch streamer, Amouranth, has revealed that her home may have been the subject of an arson attack.

The streamer made the astonishing claims on 14th August tweet, saying: 

"Yesterday, late in the evening there was a fire along the side of my home originating from the area where my trashcan is kept. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but investigators strongly suspect arson."

Fortunately, the fire didn't spread, and she, along with her pets, are fine, and authorities are looking into the matter closely. They are reviewing the surveillance footage of her house and the neighbourhood to find out the potential suspect.

She further shares that this is not the first time she has been targeted in such a way. She revealed that back in 2020, someone tried to shoot fireworks on 4th July; however, that person got caught red-handed and was arrested immediately. 

Not only this, but she also gets garden swatting on a weekly basis. This is a very serious matter, and she urged every streamer to foster a relationship with local law enforcement to ensure their safety. She further advises making authorities aware of not only the location but of their profession, as swatting is common, and being able to let authorities know when they are in actual danger is important as they can then "roll in full force".
