PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A second man has been arrested in connection with a series of arson fires that happened last month in Portland, Maine.

Eighteen-year-old Aaron Hornbeck-Fielder of Portland was arrested Monday. He’s accused of starting a fire in a Dumpster on Sunday, March 23. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Police earlier arrested 19-year-old Robert Johnson on an arson charge in connection with a small trash fire behind the Portland Museum of Art that same day.

City firefighters responded to nine fires that weekend. No one was hurt.
