A 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the January, April and May fires, and heís doing a lot of talking. Masato Chinen has confessed to six fires during interrogation, and the Urasoe Fire Station thinks he may have been involved in a few more.

Chinenís confession is being studied closely by interrogators and investigators. They hope to link Chinenís arson activities to at least four other cases of arson in Urasoe Cityís jurisdiction this year.
