Roseville Police are looking into the possibility that a 17-year-old suspected arsonist started the Maidu Park Fire.

The boy was arrested Wednesday evening. Police say witnesses reported seeing him running from where a grass fire started, near South Cirby Way and Piedmont Way.

The fire was small, and was put out in just a few minutes.

The teen is now being investigated for his possible involvement in the Maidu Park Fire, that charred 30 acres and threatened homes June 21, and other area grass fires labeled as suspicious.
