CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Chandler Police have arrested an 18-year-old man who they say is linked to several arson fires.

KSAZ-TV reports that Nathan Enns was recently arrested and faces a number of arson and criminal damage charges.

According to police, Enns set fire to a six-car garage at the Coronado Crossing apartment complex, which also damaged a 2012 Ford Mustang parked inside. Authorities say the estimated cost of damage is around $75,000.

Enns also linked to a fire of a large City of Chandler plastic trash dumpster and a city park play structure.

Police say Enns admitted to starting all three fires and has admitted to other crimes that police hadn't started investigating yet.

It was unclear if Enns had an attorney.
