CHANDLER, Ariz. -- A Valley teen is facing multiple criminal charges for allegedly starting several fires in Chandler.

According to police, 18-year-old Nathan Enns set fire to a six-car garage at the Coronado Crossing apartment complex back in March.

The fire also damaged a 2012 Ford Mustang, and did an estimated $75,000 worth of damage.

Last month, Enns is believed to have set fire to a City of Chandler plastic trash dumpster, and a Chandler play structure.

Police located Enns in Scottsdale last Friday and placed him under arrest.

Enns reportedly admitted to police that he had started the three fires in Chandler. Authorities said Enns also confessed to other crimes that are now being investigated.

Enns has been charged with three counts of arson, and one count of criminal damage.
