Teen arrested for arsons in Port Orchard

Kitsap County deputies have arrested a 16-year-old boy suspected of starting two massive fires in Port Orchard this week.

Deputies arrested the teenager around 3:30 p.m. on Thursday.

According to police, the first fire broke out at a storage facility near SE Lund Ave and Jackson Ave SE on Wednesday night. Fire officials and detectives concluded the fire was set intentionally.

Thursday afternoon, a second fire erupted at a home near SE Summer Pl and Jackson Ave SE, just a block south of the storage facility.

Police say the teen posted on social media, which led detectives to identify him as the suspect.
