Firestarter’s dirty deed quickly extinguished 

A mischievous arsonist, described by police as a 33-year-old white man, was arrested Monday night around 7:30 p.m. after he reportedly lit newspapers on fire on the side of a building in the 1700 block of Hayes Street, police said.

Responding units found the alleged firestarter around the corner from the small blaze, and he was taken into custody, police said.

Fire crews quickly extinguished the fire, according to police.
