It appears that a bicycling arsonist continues to set fires along the American River Parkway.
Over the weekend, about nine grass fires were set along the bike trail between River Bend Park and Haggin Park. The possible arsonist was a white male with short hair, wearing gray pants and shirt, riding a 10-speed-type bicycle.
This morning, Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District firefighters were kept busy responding to more brush and grass fires around River Bend Park. Again, a male adult was seen on a bike in the area.
Crews were first dispatched today to the bike trail about 4:45 a.m. They extinguished three grass fires along about a mile of the parkway.
The fires burned about an 1.5 acres. Then, about 5:30 a.m. firefighters were dispatched to three more grass fires about a quarter mile from the earler blazes.
The fires were quickly extinguished and no structures were threatened.
