Carbondale Fire Chief: No pattern to 12 rental home fires

CARBONDALE - According to fire officials, a string of fires that have taken place at several Carbondale rental properties over the last 11 months do not appear to be connected.

Carbondale Fire Chief John Michalesko says there is no pattern to the 12 rental home fires that have happened since May 2014.  Officials say seven of those fires happened in January 2015.

Authorities say one of the fires was determined to be arson, with an arrest warrant issued for a suspect, and another was found to be deliberately set, with no other information provided.  The remaining 10 fires were found to be accidental.
