A series of suspicious fires in Pulaski County leaves firefighters questioning if they are all connected. The Arch Street Fire Department says they have responded to 20 fires in the same neighborhood this year, and 6 just this month. “It almost seems like it’s nonstop,” said Captain Ted Preator with the Arch Street Fire Department. Assistant Chief Bradley Vick says the fires are all happening in the same area along Dixon, Dreher Road and Ironnton Road. Each time a calling card is left behind. “It’s the exact same item placed the exact same way against the exact kind of stuff that’s burning,” Preator said. The department says they started noticing the trend this year, but fires have really picked up in the last month. Now they say they’re searching for a suspected arsonist.
