That is what these property owners did, when a homeless man got cold and started a fire in their vacant building.
This is a risk that grows as the weather gets colder, but it also grows over time. As people looking for shelter ‘scope out’ a vacant property, they become more comfortable with the risks of breaking in. I talked a little about this in a previous post on the risks of vacant buildings and how security robots can be used to mitigate the risk.
