SIERRA VISTA, AZ (AP) - A man has been arrested in connection with several arson cases and reckless burning incidents over the past three months in Sierra Vista, police said Thursday.

A May 25 fire burned part of a building and another blaze the following day near a supermarket burned some vegetation., according to police.

A fourth fire May 27 occurred in a wash that damaged vegetation and a pile of clothes was set on fire in a wash on June 12.

Police said several other recent fires in the Sierra Vista area remain under investigation.
