Arsonist starts WSU fire

Posted: Updated:

PULLMAN, Wash. Washington State University police say an arsonist set the fire this week inside a parking garage. 

The fire is the fourth arson in two weeks on campus.         

WSU Police Lt. Steve Hansen says it appears someone set papers on fire Tuesday night in the concrete stairwell of the garage for the Fine Arts Center. The fire caused only minor damage.        

Hansen says investigators are looking into whether it may be the same arsonist who set fires last month at two apartment community centers and a laboratory building. No one has been hurt in the fires, but damages are more than $800,000.
