Edmonton police have arrested two suspects after a series of arsons in Callingwood.

Southwest division detectives began investigating after a fire was reported at Talmud Torah School at 6320 172 St. on July 15.

Surveillance footage captured male suspects lighting fires in dumpsters and garbage cans behind a condominium unit, near a baseball diamond, in a dog park and three incidents at Talmud Torah School.

Detectives believed those male suspects could be connected to nine suspected arsons that occurred within blocks of each other between July 15 and 26.

Investigators arrested two suspects in connection to the investigation, including one youth.

Additional details were expected to be made public Tuesday.
