Early Morning Arson In Downtown Eugene Leads To Suspect's Arrest
A suspected arsonist is in custody, after a string of fires in Eugene’s downtown area today.
Police got calls about a portable bathroom burning behind the former Growler Guys on West 7th Avenue. Besides an explosion, callers also mentioned the fire going up the building and onto power poles.
As Eugene-Springfield Fire crews responded to that incident, several more calls came in about dumpsters burning in the same area near apartments.
Tips lead to the arrest of Daniel David Moore, who was taken into custody earlier this morning. He had a warrant and was booked on various charges of Arson and Reckless Burning, Menacing, and Criminal Mischief.
An EPD spokesperson could not confirm if these fires are connected to numerous ones set earlier this year across the city.
