Miami House Fire Highlights The Unexpected

Miami firefighters were confronted with a not so typical entry situation in early August 2008. Firefighters arrived to a single family dwelling well off. First team on the attack was confronted with an entry door that was welded shut. Firefighters were able to utilize a partner saw to get into the dwelling turning an exterior attack into an interior attack.

Why would it be welded shut? unless some one didnt want some one to get out.
