A firebug is wreaking havoc in south Sacramento, setting more than a dozen fires during the month of May near the same intersection. Gesselle Pablo drove up on the flames and started snapping pictures. In one picture, fire lined Freeport Boulevard, but that wasn’t the only one. Pablo spotted another fire a block away off Florin Road. “I think it’s messed up. There’s already a lot going on in this world to start this, too, especially in this neighborhood,” said Pablo. What’s more concerning is that there have been 16 fires just this month. They’ve all been right near Florin Road and Freeport Boulevard. “It’s frustrating. I don’t know what to do about it, though,” said Chris Matsumoto. Matsumoto works at a nearby barbershop. “This is our area. We live around here. It hurts,” said Matsumoto.
