DETROIT (AP/WWJ) – A 26-year-old man has been charged with third-degree arson in connection with a string of fires set in Detroit buildings.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Tuesday that Anthony Fields also is charged with obstruction of justice for allegedly using threats and/or coercion to interfere with the investigation of the case.

The charges involve two of the fires in the string — both in the area of 7 Mile Road and John R on Detroit’s north end.

According to prosecutors, the first fire was set about 1 a.m. Monday, June 30,  in a vacant commercial building  on the 17600 block of John R.  Another building was set ablaze on the 600 block of Robinwood later that same morning.

Fields is scheduled to be arraigned at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in Detroit’s 36th District Court.
