RENO, Nev. (AP) - Reno fire investigators suspect a rash of small fires may be the work of a serial arsonist.
Authorities on Friday said 10 fires have been deliberately set in the area between Moana Lane and Redfield Parkway since Wednesday.
Additionally, firefighters have responded to intermittent grass, rubbish and trash bin fires over the last two weeks. All the fires occurred between midnight and around 5 a.m.
In each case, firefighters were able to extinguish the fire before it could spread.
Investigators are asking anyone with information about the fires to contact authorities or Secret Witness.
