Investigators initially said the incidents appeared to be unrelated, but were all exacerbated by windy and dry conditions.
However on Tuesday, authorities said that witnesses saw a subject leaving a house on Siesta Court off Yadkin Road as smoke bellowed out of it.
Later, a subject fitting the same description was seen attempting to start a fire at the Kangaroo Station on Owen Drive.
The subject was taken into custody and brought to Cape Fear Valley Hospital for a mental evaluation.
The fires are still under investigation by the Fayetteville Police Department and the State Bureau of Investigation and no charges have been filed at this time.
