The Vallejo Fire Department put out four fires located within 10 blocks of each other by a suspected arsonist Tuesday night near downtown Vallejo. Three of the fires were in dumpsters and one was a debris pile blaze.
No alarms were struck, since each dumpster fire was handled by a different response. The first call went out at 7 p.m.
