Earlier today, police and firefighters responded to the third in a recent string of arsons plaguing the Westside of Millennium City. When it was revealed that a metahuman was responsible for this heinous crime, local heroes and a squad of MARS officers were called in to help deal with the threat. Superheroes Galatea, Recurve, and Wreck responded to the call, while a fourth, unnamed man was reported to be on the scene, but left before local law enforcement could take note of him.
The man responsible for these attacks on the public has refused to offer any name other than 'Pyre.' According to police reports, the man believes himself to be an instrument of God's will, which served as his motive behind the attacks. He has been temporarily detained at the Millennium City Correctional Facility, pending psych evaluations and a trial.
Officers believe up to ten lives were lost, including four officers of the law. At this time, their names have not been released to the press, but the MCPD extends their well-wishings to the families who lost a loved one today.
