Seattle police say they have arrested a 17-year-old boy in connection with last month's arson at a Fred Meyer in the Lake City neighborhood.

The teen was arrested Monday afternoon.

Investigators said they believe the teen is the same person who allegedly set fires in the past few months inside a University District pharmacy, Green Lake grocery store and an office in SoDo.

On Oct. 22, investigators said a fire was intentionally set at the Fred Meyer on Lake City Way Northeast.

The store had burn damage inside, most of it in the toy section.

Several employees said someone set one or several stuffed animals on fire, and it spread from there. The Seattle Fire Department estimates damage costs at about $25,000.

This remains as an active investigation.
