    Man Arrested in Connection With 3 Suspicious Fires in Boston

    A man has been arrested in connection with three suspicious fires in Boston.

    Officers and firefighters responded to three suspicious fires in Boston within an hour and a half of one another Monday night between 1 a.m. and 2:30 a.m.

    According to police, officers initially responded to a call for an oil truck fully engulfed in flames in the area of 87 Norwell Street in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

    About ten minutes later, a second fire was reported in a trash barrel on Waterlow Street. It was quickly extinguished, police said.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    The third fire was reported at about 2:30 a.m. Officers were called to the area of 90 Norwell Street where a resident stated that they observed a male suspect enter their backyard, pile up several items against a fence and light them on fire.

    According to police, a K-9 officer located a suspect matching the description in the area of Radcliffe Street and Vassar Street.

    He was placed in custody without incident after he was positively identified.

    Police say the suspect is Sequonie Suarez, 27, of Dorchester.

    He is charged with arson of a motor vehicle, burning personal property (two counts) and trespassing.

    Suarez will be arraigned in Dorchester District Court.

    It is unclear if he has an attorney.
