Endicott family: 'Lie with pigs, fry like bacon' message on home during fire

ENDICOTT NY -- The owners of a home that caught fire in Endicott Wednesday shared unsettling information with Action News on Thursday....

The family member, who's asked to to remain anonymous, said they believe the house was targeted. They say a "Blue Lives Matter" flag waves in front of their house next to an American flag....

According to that family member, across the back of house on a strip of siding read this message: "Lie with pigs, fry like bacon."

The family member tells Action News they believe the message and the fact that they had a "Blue Lives Matter" flag are not a coincidence.

New York State Police have not said if they think the presence of the flag played a role in the fire. Officials have also not said if they've found a motive or possible suspects.
