Excerpts from Chicago.cbslocal.com:

A charred car is all that’s left in one garage after a string of arsons in one Chicago neighborhood, but a video of the arsonist at work has surfaced showing a man who set a series of fires walking down an alley. 

Surveillance of an alley shows a man apparently starting a fire then walking away from a trash bin. The fire burned hot and quick. One garage was engulfed.  Detectives said they’re looking for a man fitting the image on video is responsible for a string of arsons also in Logan Square back on August 25.

Chicago police are looking into the incidents, saying they are open investigations and could not comment any further. If a pattern can be confirmed, a community alert will be issued.
