Provo Arsonist Strikes Three More Times

PROVO INVESTIGATORS WERE STILL COMBING OVER THE SITES OF THREE SMALL FIRES, TUESDAY AFTERNOON, ALL BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN INTENTIONALLY SET, EARLY THAT MORNING.

THESE BLAZES -- AT TWO ABANDONED HOMES, AND A CAR -- NOW BRING THE TOTAL OF SUSPECTED ARSON FIRES TO TEN, OVER THE PAST SIX WEEKS.

THE ONLY INJURY -- IN ANY OF THE TEN FIRES, SO FAR -- WAS A CASE OF SMOKE INHALLATION, SUFFERED BY A FIREFIGHTER, AT ONE BLAZE.

STATE FIRE MARSHAL DOGS WERE ASSISTING INVESTIGATORS, WORKING TO LOCATE ACCELERANTS.
