A pyromaniac is on the loose in SoMa where a slew of fires have been ignited in the neighborhood over the last few days.
Police think they have a suspect, and this morning released still images from a surveillance camera which shows the man in question.
Have a look:
According to Sgt. Danielle Newman:
