Three vehicles were completely destroyed in the fires. The Hyatt on West High Street suffered from water and fire damage. Several lights were damaged inside the parking garages where the cars were.

Investigators say Hall started the first fire in the stairwell at the Hyatt Friday night. He started the first car fire around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, then started the other two car fires a couple hours later.

Investigators add that Hall went back to the Hyatt to start another fire on the twelfth floor.

As of now, investigators don’t expect to make any more arrests.
