WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) –Police are searching for a man said to set several small fires on South College Road.

WECT first reported this story Wednesday night.

The fires began on June 11 and have continued early this week near the McDonald's Chili's. Wilmington fire officials believe the series of fires might be a prank.
