PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Police arrested a suspect who they think is responsible for setting 10 arson fires in southwest Portland on Thursday.

The suspect, Brandon Miller faces multiple charges including arson and reckless burning.

According to police, surveillance video allowed them to put together the sequence of events as the suspect allegedly lit multiple fires.

Video shows the suspect lighting the fires, then casually walking away.

Officials say the suspect was arrested after a staff member at one of the arson locations had recognized Miller and called police.

Miller said he had recently moved to Portland from California.
