Police have arrested a suspect they say has had firefighters taking down blazes in Seattle’s Madrona neighborhood for hours Monday night. The Seattle Fire Department confirmed it is investigating four fires set outside private homes in the neighborhood in the evening hours, starting around 7 p.m. The fires were all in the 600 block of 37th Avenue, 500 block of 31st Avenue and in the 500th block of 30th avenue. SFD later said the fires would start in wood on the front porch or trash cans. One fire did extend to a gas grill and its propane tank. No one was injured but one home was damaged enough to displace the residents. The damage varies between all four homes. Seattle police say they arrested the suspect, identified only as a male, in the area and they are sending their arson and bomb squad to investigate.
