|Surveillance footage captured a Boystown|
arsonist in action early this morning.
He takes his time setting a fire in Boystown this morning, moving things around in the Roscoe Street alley until everything is arranged to his liking. Then, he bends down, puts a flame to a mattress, and walks away.
That series of events was caught on video, the first of at least three arson fires that swept the area overnight, gutting a coach house, burning out a truck, and heavily damaging the Roscoe Street garage in separate crimes.
No one was injured.

|Firemen strike the Roscoe Street blaze.|
Early on June 10, an arsonist set several cars on fire near Wrigley Field. No arrest was made in connection with those incidents.
