TITUSVILLE – Fire officials are describing it as a fully involved… tennis shoe.  At around 5:00 this morning, crews in Titusville were called out to Maxwell Drive where they discovered a single lit sneaker, fully engulfed in flames with a can of Zippo fuel resting on top.  Assistant Fire Chief Ken Leach says the shoe was some four feet off the roadway under a hemlock tree on a grassy hillside.  The apparent prank was extinguished within seconds and there was no further damage reported.
