Wednesday morning's multiple fires were just the latest in a long string of arsons by one person, according to police. 

On Wednesday, May 9, the United Firefighters of Winnipeg president Alex Forrest sent out a release saying that four fires that morning appeared to be the work of an arsonist. The close proximity and nature of the fires had crews suspicious.

Two garages on Sheppard were on fire, and just a few blocks away another two garages on Lavender were on fire.

The Winnipeg Police Service says that members made a patrol of the area and located a male on a bike that matched the description given by a witness.

"A search of the male led to the seizure of a number of items including incendiary materials," the WPS says. As investigators continued their investigation they felt the male was responsible for previous fires since May 1.

A 19-year-old male of Winnipeg has been charged with 16 counts of Arson Causing Damage to Property, and one charge of Possession of Incendiary Material.

He was kept in custody.
