Arson investigators are trying to catch up with the suspect, or suspects responsible for a string of nearly 3 dozen arson fires set over the past few weeks. The fires started on March 23, and all have been within a 12 mile radius of the city of Cloquet. On April 18th alone crews responded to 12 fires. Due to the quick response and efforts of fire fighters, most of the arson fires remained quite small.
