Is there an arsonist in Palo Alto??

Original post made by Cool off on Jul 5, 2007

I know it's hot and I know global warming is real and there's a lot of dry grass in the area, but it strikes me as really strange that there would be so many fires in such a small area in so few days. Just makes me wonder if the police are looking at one or two possible arson suspects responsible for multiple area fires now (I would think they are ).

Could one or two people be responsible for all of these fires? Where's Sherlock Holmes when you need him?!

I agree that this sounds suspicious. There is now another two today. I doubt if it is anyone with any kind of political agenda. More likely bored kids.
