Suspect Charged In Gamble And Huff Building Blaze

Police in Pennsylvania have charged one man with arson after the offices of legendary songwriters KENNETH GAMBLE and LEON HUFF were destroyed in a suspicious fire.
The Philadelphia International Records office, where the Me and Mrs. Jones hitmakers held recording sessions with late industry icons Michael Jackson and Teddy Pendergrass, went up in flames on Sunday (21Feb10).
The building suffered fire, smoke and water damage, but miraculously the recording studio was left largely unaffected by the incident.
Local fire officials have now arrested Christopher Cimini, 27, on suspicion of setting the building alight.
He has been charged with arson, risking or causing a catastrophe, burglary and criminal trespass, among other counts.
Meanwhile, Huff remains confident the songwriting duo will overcome the devastating blaze and has vowed to restore the offices.
He says, "We'll bounce back. We wrote the song - Only the Strong Survive."
