Michigan Officials Suspect Arson in 10 Fires in Flint

April 20, 2010

Authorities in Flint are investigating a dozen weekend fires — most of them suspected to be arson.

Flint Fire Department Battalion Chief Andy Graves said Sunday that 12 fires were reported since midnight last Friday. The first occurred at 1:38 a.m. Saturday in a vacant house.

Graves says 10 of the 12 fires are being investigated as possible arson.

He says a total of 107 fires have been reported in April, which he says is a “gigantic” increase from the 37 reported in the same time period last year.
