EL PASO - The police and fire department are investigating five fires in the same area in Northeast El Paso all within a few hours of each other.

Firefighters were busy putting out fire after fire, all within just a few miles of each other, leading them to think an arsonist is on the loose.

First a dumpster was allegedly set on fire just after 2 a.m., after which at three others were also found on fire.
Almost two hours later, an apartment nearby was up in flames.

All of these incidents are believed to be related and have been ruled intentional by a fire investigator.
