A man has been arrested in connection with a series of arsons in Evesham Twp., New Jersey.

James Dahl, 20, has been charged in connection with some of the fires. He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday afternoon.

About a dozen fires were deliberately set in the woods surrounding the Kings Grant development since June 11th, with six since the July 4th holiday weekend.

Police say it is likely Dahl will eventually be charged in all of those arson cases.

The local fire department has managed to contain them and prevent a spread to the local housing.

Investigators say the fires were set after midnight and in early evening daylight hours.

As the investigation continues, anyone with information can call Evesham Police at 856-983-4699.
