Multiple arson investigations in Waterloo

Posted: Updated:

After an early morning fire on Wednesday, investigators are now looking into three different cases of arson in Waterloo in the past week.

There was a car fire Saturday night on Dawson Street, a vacant house fire on Archer Avenue on Sunday, and Wednesday morning's house fire on Courtland Street.

No one was hurt, but police believe all three were started on purpose.

Waterloo Fire Chief Pat Treloar says having three different arson cases in the same week is very unusual, but he does not believe they are related.

Investigators have sent samples of each fire to the State Crime Lab to confirm the use of accelerants.

No arrests have been made.

The fires remain under investigation.
