NBC Boston Reports Arrest Made in Fire at AutoZone, CVS, and Marshalls in East Boston

A woman named Genesis Hurtado, 26, has been arrested in connection with a series of fires that occurred at businesses in an East Boston business plaza over the last few days. The incidents included fires at an AutoZone on Border Street, a CVS pharmacy, and a Marshalls department store. Hurtado is suspected of setting fire to the AutoZone on the same day it broke out, using seat covers to ignite the blaze. On Monday, authorities charged her in connection with the Saturday night fires as well.
Additionally, a fourth fire was set at a nearby McDonald’s on the same day that Hurtado was arrested, but police have not linked her to that incident as of Monday afternoon. No injuries were reported from any of the fires. Hurtado, who is from Chelsea, was apprehended around 10 a.m. on Monday near Central Square Park after a report of a suspicious person fleeing the scene.
At the time of her arrest, it was unclear if Hurtado had legal representation. She was scheduled to appear in court on Monday afternoon to face the multiple charges against her. The investigation into the fires is ongoing, with arson investigators working to build a case against Hurtado for the damage caused in the East Boston business plaza.Business owners in the area can rest a little easier knowing the alleged arsonist is in police custody.
