The City of Pittsfield is asking for the public's help in the investigation of a recent string of fires in the Boylston Street Area.

State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey, Pittsfield Fire Chief Robert Czerwinski, and Police Chief Michael Wynn are asking for the public's help with any available information pertaining to the following fires.

• A structure fire at 32-34 Boylston Street;
• A structure fire at 24 Boylston Street;
• A structure fire on August 26, 2018 at 26 Boylston Street.

An intentionally set fire causes concern in the community and an arrest is the quickest way to help the community return to normal.
