Police and firefighters are investigating a rash of arson attacks in the ultra-Orthodox Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea She’arim this week that appear to have been set by a local resident. In the past three days, seven small fires have broken out in the radius of a few blocks.

Over Shavuot, five fires broke out between midnight and 4:00 a.m. in three different places on Rehov Joseph Karo and two places on Rehov Reichman. Given that they were already in the area, firefighters responded immediately to each blaze, which was put out rapidly before major damage was caused.
