Suspect arrested after seven dumpster fires in downtown Vancouver
Police have arrested a man after tracing a spree of seven dumpster fires this past weekend in downtown Vancouver.
Sgt. Randy Fincham said it appears the suspect blazed a trail south from around Granville and Nelson streets to around Seymour and Davie streets, close to where the arrest took place.
Andrew John Kyle, 43, is now charged with one count of arson.
Fincham said the suspect’s mental health is being looked at as a factor in the fires.
The damage was mostly limited to the dumpsters in laneways along Granville Street since the fires were put out quickly, he added.
