Streator man accused of setting garage and car on fire

Posted by wlpo on September 7, 2016

There have been a lot of suspicious fires over the past few years in Streator. An alleged arsonist was brought into custody Wednesday morning.

Just after midnight, a 9-1-1 call went out about a car fire on Bazore Street. While firefighters and police were there, they got another call about a garage fire on North Sterling Street. Both fires were put out quickly without any injuries.

While investigating, police arrested 22-year-old Antonio Tinco of Streator for two counts of arson and a single count of burglary. He was taken to the La Salle County Jail.
