Toronto police say they have made an arrest in the Jane and Wilson arson case. 

Two cars were set on fire overnight on people's driveways.

Firefighters were first called to Richard Clark Drive early Sunday morning.

As they were putting out a blaze on that street, they became aware that another car was on fire on Calais Ave around the corner, and they ran over with a hose.

Police say they have taken a 30-year-old man into custody who lives in a building in the area. 

He is also considered a "person of interest" in an arson case from earlier this month. Several cars were set on fire in the same neighbourhood two weeks ago. 

Charges have not yet been laid but police say they expect that to happen soon. 

The fire marshal's office has been called in to investigate the fires. 

Mario is one of the homeowner's where a car was torched. The vehicle belonged to his son's friend and is beyond saving.

"Nobody hides their cars, we just keep them in the driveway... you don't expect something like this to happen," he said.

Neighbours in the area tell Newstalk 1010 that a nearby park has been attracting a "bad crowd." One woman said she's been in touch with the mayor's office in an attempt to get lights installed and for the trees to be pruned.
