Report: Arrest in San Jose arsons
January 17, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

Police say they have arrested a man believed responsible for setting nearly a dozen blazes within a week in San Jose.

Sgt. Albert Morales said the suspect was taken in for questioning Wednesday night by the police Covert Response Unit.

Authorities released few details about the suspect. The newspaper says investigators are conducting follow-up interviews and plan to reveal more at a news conference Thursday morning.

The fire department has reported 13 fires near downtown since Jan. 8. Eleven of them are determined to be arson. The blazes usually occurred during the early morning hours. Three fires alone were set on Sunday.

The targets have included homes and businesses and a church. No injuries are reported.

Earlier in the week authorities released a sketch of a person of interest in the case.
