MCKEESPORT, Pa. (AP) - Police say they’ve taken a person into custody after three suspicious fires in the Pittsburgh suburb of McKeesport.

The first fire was reported at a home on Beaver Street about 10:30 p.m. Monday. About midnight, another fire was reported on Sixth Street, then another a short time later early Tuesday on Market Street.

Authorities haven’t said why they think the fires are suspicious, how they were set, or how the person in custody may be linked to them.
