Police have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with at least two suspicious fires this week in Sydney, N.S.
Three fires took place within a short time on Wednesday evening.
A vacant house went up in flames on George Street at 9:15 p.m., and a garage caught fire at 11 p.m on Kings Road.
Cape Breton Regional Police say when they arrived at the third scene they located a man in the area who matched the description of a man who was seen in the area during the first fire.
Officers arrested the man on suspicion of arson. He remains in police custody at this time, although no charges have been laid yet.
