OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A man suspected of starting several fires in Seminole is now in custody in Oklahoma City.

Police say Kevin Lynn Williams was arrested late Monday night at the home of relatives on warrants accusing him of first-degree arson and two counts of third-degree arson.

Williams is also suspected of writing e-mails to the Seminole newspaper in which he refers to himself as ``Fire Starter'' and taunts police.

Seminole Fire Chief Ed Lemmings says there have been seven to ten suspicious fires since July. The latest were last Tuesday when a van was burned in a home health care parking lot and a pickup was set on fire minutes later a block and a half away.
