A suspected arsonist connected to several fires that sparked in northwest Fresno has been taken into custody. Fresno fire investigators tell Action News that four separate fires broke out starting around 2:30 Monday afternoon. Those flames alarmed drivers and nearby residents in the areas of Herndon and Brawley, and Valentine and Alluvial. ABC30 insiders sent us video of some of those grass fires as they sent smoke high into the air. Then again, Tuesday afternoon, another fire broke out near Palo Alto and Berlin Avenues. Fire investigators say a neighbor caught someone leaving the area of the latest fire on a bike. They used that information and other videos from neighbors to identify the suspect.
